Basic Building Blocks of a Language
What are the fundamental words of any language? When can we say that we know a language, and can communicate our feelings, thoughts, and ideas? Branches of science like physics and chemistry have their own evolving standard models and any newcomer to the field starts learning by understanding the key features of this model. Is a similar approach in language learning feasible? Is it possible for humans to be polyglot easily? Can we reduce the language learning to some standard models?
