Word codes which can induce mental imbalance

Thousands of things can be mentioned about the varied features of feudal languages. This is because the verbal codes in them would get activated in each of the words of feudal language speakers.

I will mention more about this later, when a right context arrives.

However, I will give here, a few illustrative examples to explain what these are.

The first thing to be mentioned here is about a very common feature found among feudal language speakers. It is about the varied and multitude of personality content such speakers have.

An individual is addressed with a specific level among the differing forms of YOU (Nee-lowest, Ningal-middle, Saar/Maadam-highest &c.), by a person senior to him in social standing or something similar.

That is, he is either addressed as Nee, Ningal or Saar/Maadam/Thangal.

By a person senior to him in age / social stature / job position &c.

It would be quite visibly seen and felt that he or she gets transformed to that very specific level corresponding to the word-code used by a senior person.

The same individual is addressed with a specific level among the differing forms of YOU (Nee, Ningal, Saar/Maadam &c.), by a person lower to him in social standing or something similar.

That is, he is either addressed as Nee, Ningal or Saar/Maadam/Thangal.

By a person lower to him in age / social stature / job position &c.

It would be quite visibly seen and felt that he or she gets transformed to quite different person depending on the word-code used.

However, here one needs to note that the person who did the addressing is of a lower stature.

Two quite different codes are working on the addressed individual.

One the specific word-code used.

Second the social stature of the person who used it.

In the very simple illustrative example given above, this specific individual can have six different personalities. In actual life, there would be more.

There is indeed a very specific relative standard of personality in the different cases.

Depending on the word-code used.

And depending on the relative-stature of the person addressing and the person addressed.

This affects so many minute features of the individual with regard to the other.

Like for instance, behave softly to the other or another person, speak with a thundering voice so as to intimidate or disparage, speak sarcastically, speak scornfully, speak with praising words, speak without lies, speak lies, be punctual, be unpunctual, keep one’s word, break one’s words, be committed, break one’s commitment &c.

In each one of the above-mentioned items, the exact behaviour and personality feature that comes into play would depend on the verbal codes by which the two persons are connected.

To put the idea is more forceful terms, it can be mentioned thus:

There is a person who is addressed as ‘Saar’ (Highest YOU) in Malayalam by the persons immediately around him. Suddenly from among the persons around him, one man addresses him with a Ningal (a middle level YOU).

Immediately, at least some of the personality features mentioned in connection with 'schizophrenia' in the insane mental science called psychiatry might be seen to get activated in the addressed man.

The most easily visible example of this might be a police station in Kerala, in India.

A ordinary citizen of India goes to the police station. He addresses the employees there (policemen), especially an Inspector, with a ‘Ningal’ (middle level YOU). The chance of that employee (Inspector or policemen) losing his mental balance is quite high. It is highly probable that the ordinary citizen will get slapped and thrashed heavily inside the police station.

A mere word can induce homicidal mania!

If an ordinary citizen goes into a government office and starts addressing the employees therein with a Ningal, may be no one would use abusive words loudly him. Or slap him.

However, the chance that his expected official papers would get delayed unduly is highly probable.

For, the employee in the government offices would be bearing a terrible kind of antipathy and anger to the common citizen.

Here these kinds of mental imbalances and terrific antipathies are created by very soft verbal codes. It might not be correct to place the blame on the individual concerned.

These kinds of observations can be very easily felt and seen if one views the social communication from an English perspective, if one knows both the languages.
