The language of academics

The language of academics is a language in itself. It is used for specialized discussions. It is also used in academic publications. Earlier, there were uniform academic languages. In the European region, Latin dominated academics for a long time. Today, on the other hand, English is the most significant academic language. Academic languages are a type of vernacular. They contain many specific terms. Their most significant features are standardization and formalization. Some say that academics speak incomprehensibly on purpose. When something is complicated, it seems more intelligent. However, academia often orients itself toward the truth. Therefore, it should use a neutral language. There is no place for rhetorical elements or flowery speech. However, there are many examples of excessively complicated language. And it appears that complicated language fascinates man! Studies prove that we trust more difficult languages. Test subjects had to answer a few questions. This involved choosing between several answers. Some answers were formulated simply, others in a very complicated way. Most test subjects chose the more complex answer. But this didn't make any sense! The test subjects were deceived by the language. Even though the content was absurd, they were impressed by the form. Writing in a complicated way is not always an art, however. One can learn how to pack simple content into complex language. To express difficult things easily, on the other hand, is not so simple. So sometimes the simple is really complex…

Guess the language!

______ian is a South Slavic language. It is very closely related to Serbian, Bosnian and Montenegrin. The speakers of these languages can easily communicate among themselves. Therefore, many linguists think that ______ian is not even its own language. They view it as one of the many forms of Serbo-______ian. Approximately 7 million people worldwide speak ______ian. The language is written with Latin letters. The ______ian alphabet has 30 letters, including a few special symbols.

The orthography strictly conforms to the pronunciation of the words. That is also true for words that are borrowed from other languages. The lexical stress of ______ian is melodic. That means that the pitch of the syllables is crucial in the intonation. The grammar has seven cases and is not always simple. It is worth it to learn the ______ian language though. ______ia is a really beautiful vacation spot!
