A World Forgotten Fact: The Power of Language

As the world becomes more globalized, language is unquestionably an
international issue as well as a national agenda that requires attention from
all. Language is a success key to social, economic, political, and cultural
development. Inventions will not be utilized widely at the fullest extent;
national development ideas cannot be immersed into and implemented in
communities unless they are well communicated to create local understanding
through appropriate languages. Conflicts and their resolutions within and among
countries are examples to prove how great an impact language could bring to the
world at large. The power of Language goes beyond spoken or written words.
Unless we are able to really understand each other, and learn more about the
world and people through language, it is not possible to have sustainable
development and peace.

To know the power of language is thus essential for global socio-economic,
cultural and academic development, community capacity building, transfer of
technology, international trade, international relations, laws and legal
interactions, human relationships and people, quality of life, esthetics, and
world existence.

We would like to invite multidisciplinary scholars, experts, and researchers,
multidisciplinary professionals, government officials, politicians, development
advocates, NGO members, private sector, academicians, educators, linguists,
writers, translators, interpreters, technologists, teachers, students around the
world to share knowledge, findings and experiences on this world forgotten fact.
