Abstract: Language was known to be formed as a part of the human endeavor in recognizing, interpreting and expressing various phenomena in the nature of which his role is that of a mere piece of puzzle which forms the whole picture. In understanding the revolution that brought in the language that we use today one must have a firm grasp over the ever changing nature of language. Language is observed to be A volatile phenomena which never stays static and is always prone to change. Constant additions and subtractions are being done in the realm of languages as there is novelty in each human being which demands for the novelty in expression through language. Language changes its form and content from time to time, as Fredrick. T. Wood’s well put observation in his Outline History of English Language of the nonsensical nature of Chaucerian stanzas from an excerpt taken from an earlier edition which would render the reader mute with its stark contrast on the dissimilarity of the English that we know and speak today. The same applies for every language. The modern French differs from the old French and so does the German that was in use a few centuries ago and the one that is currently in use. In the understanding of anything, one must travel back in time towards the origin. The origin of the formation of language could thus be tracked back to the observation and imitation of natural elements by our ancient forefathers. Various theories are at play which strives to explain this nature of imitation which led to a formation of continual sounds which eventually culminated into the formation of meaningful sounds that is language.
