我的语言观

我出生在中国,生下来不久就开始呀呀学语,然后一路读书,一直在学校学习语文这门功课。那段时间,自己没有感觉语文是一门语言,只是知道这是中文而已。很遗憾,我的语文学得太差了,高考我考了全班最低分;更遗憾的是在工作很多年之后,发现自己在大学毕业之前读的书太少了。

中学期间,我开始学习英语,那个时候在学校,这门功课叫“外语”,不叫英语。那个时候我对语言没有概念,中文因为是母语,大家都在说,没有把他当成一门语言对待。英语就更不用说了,这门课被我当成了政治历史,就是背,死记硬背以应付考试。

从学校到工作,我还学了很多计算机编程语言,先是在中学时学BASIC,后来在大学学PASCAL,汇编和C语言,后来工作就一直研究C语言。我精通C语言,但是就在半年前我放弃C语言,转到市场部门工作之后,我都还没有悟到语言到底是什么。

前段时间,我去了一趟德国。这次旅程让我悟到了语言的真谛。

我第一次进德国超市,人就傻了,全是德文呀!我学了这么多年的英语白学了,到了资本主义发到国家德国,还是一个字都不认识,那个郁闷啊!无法形容。后来静下来,我发现我怎么就默认德国的超市时英文呢!后来我开始认真思考一些问题,中文是什么?现在的小孩为什么从小学就开始学英语?为什么不是德语……

语言是用来交流的,当交流没有障碍时,就感觉不到语言的重要性,比如中文,我们人人都会讲,都可以交流,这时就忘记了语言作为交流的媒介,是需要锤炼的,这是一种非常重要的能力。学好一门语言,不仅可以交流,还可以更好地交流,还可以完成一些别人无法完成的交流任务。从对一门语言的掌握程度上,就基本可以判断一个人能做的事情的大小。

语言是人类发明的一套符号系统,用来表达意义。就像计算机编程语言,写一段程序,告诉计算机做什么事情,就像是在说一段话,程序写得好坏,就看这段话说得是否清楚明白。计算机语言也是一套符号系统,有独立的语法规则。现在有很多不同的计算机编程语言,我是计算机专业出身,我很清楚这些不同的语言有不同的侧重点、特性和应用场景。不同的国家也有不同的语言,这是历史形成,但不同的仅仅是符号系统,要表达的意义是一样的。

嗨~~~当我面对全是德文的超市时,我“痛定思痛”,只要表达清楚意义,就没有问题,不懂德文也没有问题。但是,我还是要继续学习语言,继续学习是为了更好的跟别人交流,用他们的母语跟他们交流。同时,我也不再害怕学习别的语言,就是一套符号系统,熟悉熟悉,大胆去用即可。

 

My attitude about language

I was born in China. I started learning Chinese with my parents not long before I was born. I had Chinese lessons in my primary school, middle school and high school. But during that period of study time, I had no feeling about Chinese. What I only understood at that time was that it is only a language called Chinese. I was very sorry for myself that I got the lowest mark of Chinese at the college entrance examination in my class, and I found that I had read very few books after graduation from college.

In my middle school time, I started to learn English. It was not called English at that time. The course was called Foreign Language. I had no idea about language at that time. Chinese is my mother tongue, and everybody speaks Chinese around me. I didn’t even realize Chinese is a kind of language. English for me was just like Politics or History. What I need to do was reciting for examination.

I also had learned many kinds of computer programming language since middle school until I have been working for companies for many years. First, I learned BASIC in middle school, then PASCAL, assembly and C programming language in college. After graduation, I earned many years experience of C programming language in Corp. I master C programming language. Half a year ago, I gave up C and transferred to Sales Department. Even I master the C programming language, I still didn’t realize what a language means.

A few days ago, I just came back from Germany. I appreciate that this one month German trip makes me understood what language is.

When I went into German supermarket at the first time, I was very upset by the German language all around. I could not find English which I had studied since middle school. It was a waste that I had studied so many years English that I could not still recognize even a single German word. I was so upset that I could not describe my feelings. After calm down, I found that I made a mistake. I should not consider that English is used in German supermarket in default. And then, I made myself thinking some problems about language. What is Chinese? Why we start to learn English in primary school? Why not German……

Language is used for communication. When there is no obstacle in communication, the importance of language itself will be ignored easily. Let’s take Chinese for example. We all speak Chinese. We feel easy to communicate with each other in Chinese. So we sometimes ignore Chinese itself which is also needed to be practiced. Language is a very important ability for everyone. Language can be used for communication, even negotiation. People who master language can do something which someone else who does not master it can not do. We can tell that someone is capable of doing something big or not from his degree of mastering a language.

Language is a symbol system created by human used for express meanings. Human language is just like computer programming language. Making program is just like telling computer what should be done. It is similar with to speaking. We judge a program good or bad by reading the program to find that it is clear or not. Computer language is also a symbol system which has independent grammar. Nowadays, there are many different computer languages. My major in college is computer science. I can deeply understand the different features, different scenarios for these different languages. Different countries have different languages, too. The fact is established by history. But different symbol systems can express the same meanings!

After facing all German word supermarket and making the problem above clear, I made up my mind that there will be no problem if I express my meanings clearly. There is no problem if you don’t know German. But, I also make up my mind that I need to continue my language study. I want to make foreigners understand me better. The best way to reach it is using their mother tongue. I am not afraid of learning foreign languages any more. It is just a symbol system. Making myself familiar with the symbol system and just use it bravely.
