I recently read a quote that basically said anything we feel we can be expressed through language. When I first read this quote I thought it was a novel idea. However, I have thought many times that some things are ineffiable. The quote got me thinking maybe they are only ineffiable because I don't have the control of English, for instance a large enough vocabulary or the syntax to put it together, or perhaps English isn't complex enough of a language (I know it's hard to believe). Maybe If I had a much more complex language then some things that I might consider ineffiable today could be expressed to a statisfying degree. Maybe a feeling that I could describe in 1,000 words in the English I use could be described in less with a better control of English or maybe even far less in another more complex or efficent language. That made me think back to my first quater of college when in Sociology we learned of the Sparrier-Whorf hypothesis, which basically said that how we think is directly connected to the language we use, that our thoughts come from language to a large degree. But no matter how large the vocabluary or how well you put it together there will always be the ineffiable, because it will never be a perfect language, and thoughts will always push the limits of the language that describes it. Maybe it has something to do with how we put thoughts together and make new thoughts out of existing ones. Maybe in a future one word will equal a novel from today. To sum it up I think the quote was right in that you can always try to describe what your thinking however crudely with the language that you have. However, there will always be a limit to push, thus the ineffiable. What do you think?
