Quote of the Day

Image result for corrupting language

As part of the 2-for-1 George Orwell package that I began earlier with my post on “Perseverance,” the Quote of the Day comes from none other than Mr. Orwell himself and his Magna Carta…err…magnum opus, Ninety Eighty-Four.

For all you cunning linguists out there who speak one or more foreign language, you’ll probably read into this on a deeper level, all too aware of how language can shape our biases – and the other way around – when we step out of the comfort zone of our mother tongue.

“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.”
