Language and Culture

I recently found a quotation that I had written down several years ago because I found it so interesting in its construction, but ultimately it’s commentary on language and culture.  I hope you might also appreciate it.

“The language is gonna have the characteristics of the people that speak it. If the people is inconsistent the language is gonna be inconsistent. If the people is fucking greedy, take shit no matter where they go– the language is gonna take shit no matter where it go. The language is a reflection of the people.”   Marlon Hill, Word Wars
