Codes of reality!

What is language!

What the software encases

Languages are software. They contain words which are either codes in themselves, or else codes that are powerfully connected to other complicated codes or groups of codes. So that certain words may not simply convey a specific simple meaning, but may also enforce or convey a particular social design. 

I think I can explain this fact by a simple illustration. There is a language called Malayalam, spoken by the people of Kerala, which is a small state in the southern end of India. It is a terribly feudal language. The people more or less live in a state of mental enslavement, but do not much feel it, for they are used to it not only from childhood, but also trained to find enjoyment in it by the public educational system.
