Knowledge reveals that man and woman speak, write, hear and understand a language that they know. Knowledge also reveals that there are many modern languages that are known by man and woman, just as there were ancient languages known by ancient man and woman.
Knowledge further reveals that a language is learnt as a child to speak, write, hear and understand. Knowledge reveals that man and woman understand many subjects in knowledge in the language that they know.
Knowledge reveals that what man and woman want to communicate to another is done by the language they know.
What is the wisdom regarding language, is the question?
Wisdom reveals that a moment in life is always present. Wisdom reveals that a moment which is always present in life is precise. Wisdom reveals that the content, which is within any moment, is precise as well.
Wisdom reveals that the content, which is within any moment, cannot be other than the content which is in the moment. Wisdom reveals that the timing of the content is always precise as well.
Wisdom in life reveals that the content within the moment is neither late nor early. Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment in life is always precisely on time.
Wisdom in life reveals that the content of the moment is language, albeit illusory, because in a moment only particular sound appears as language. Wisdom in life reveals that language, albeit illusory, in any moment cannot be another language besides the language in the moment.
Wisdom in life reveals that man and woman do not make any moment in life. Wisdom reveals that the moment in life was in life much before man and woman were in life.
Knowledge takes language for granted because man and woman believe they have learnt the language they know how to communicate. Wisdom, however, does not take language for granted. Man and woman with wisdom regarding language are grateful to life for its gift of language for they can communicate.
The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that man and woman will come to know the language that they are meant to know.

A linguist is a person who has studied or learned many languages with a degree of fluency. There are many ways of learning them: for instance as a native, a resident, a traveller or a student, albeit illusory. Language, be it spoken or by sign, is the customary means of communication between people and with some domesticated animals. Be that as it may, the wise reveal that it is the gift of life itself that takes precise and unique care of its own, notwithstanding that is an illusion. That is to say that it is not as the mind says it is. This care provides for every animate and inanimate detail as it is meant to be. Understanding this is trust.
