Abstract

This paper briefly takes within its scope a micro-level approach to the recent ideas on language. The concept of language cannot be subsumed into a single coherent notion, as it constitutes psychological, biological, social and cultural complexities. In order to gain a comprehensive understanding of such issues involved in this field, conceptual arguments would have to be drawn from several interrelated areas. Considering the micro-level nature of this work, an in-depth presentation of all those areas seen as relevant to the overall framework of the study would not be viable. Rather, a basic introduction is given of a wide gamut of areas seen as essential to the illumination of the processes under review. It will briefly present the language diversity and the effects of globalization on them. This would provide a backdrop against which the observations made in this analysis are viewed objectively and judged for their validity.
