Language – and what it means to us

I know many of you have already seen this, but as a (n aspiring) linguist I have to share it. I think the clip is just brilliantly made, a bit too long for most people, but still brilliant. It’s in Norwegian, and unless you find a Great (yes, need capital letter there) translator, the point would probably be lost in translation. Are you a language fan yourself, then you might be able to understand some of it, even though your native tongue’s not Norwegian. Good luck!

Jeg vet at denne filmsnutten nå begynner å bli ganske gammel, men la den bli en klassiker! Har du sett den? se den igjen. La deg begeistre av dens brillians. Den er et ypperlig eksempel på hva språk er og hvordan det kan brukes. Filmen er ganske lang, men likevel verdt de få minuttene av livet ditt den varer. Du får dem ikke igjen, men du sitter kanskje igjen en smule mer reflektert 😉
