“Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow”, says, Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Language is a ubiquitous and distinctive ability that plays a central role in human discernment and social interaction. It is a proof about what we’re as a human. Language shapes our behaviour and leaves a good impression on another person. Sometimes, words just aren’t spelled the way they sound. “Accommodate,” for example, is frequently misspelled as “acommodate” or “accomodate.” Understanding of relationship between written words and sounds is extremely important to translate your thoughts and ideas into coherent speech. The more thoroughly you know a word, the more likely you will be able to recognise it in unfamiliar texts, spell it and use it appropriately in your own speech. Being articulate gives people the impression of a brilliant, eloquent and cultured mind; it will make people more likely to listen to you and to respect your intelligence. If you just communicate, you can get by .But if you can communicate skilfully, you can get miracles.
