ILLUMINATION

The mysticism of the Irish Language

When a language is lost, the feeling it shaped within all of its speakers, is lost too. This is not something we can quantify or qualify, but as languages are products of cultures developing, how we give articulation to our thoughts matters. Language matters. As the philosopher of language Wittgenstein famously put it,

“The limits of my language means the limits of my world.”

This essay will discuss the limitations of language on thought with a focus on the Irish language to illustrate this.
