with language you can get every army from different countries and be able to talk to them in there own language. the power would earn you money.

If you were able to talk everyones language you wuldn't need translators. People would come to you. With that brings wealth and a certain amount of power over people. I wouldn't want total power.

But why would they listen to you? There are some people who can speak 10 or more languages, why don't they have vast armies at their command?

that doesn't make sense, you'd be a translator and that's all, amongst millions of other translators. what would make everyone suddenly come to you if there's a translator much closer?

besides, you'd have to work..

why would someone want total power? if u got someone like hitler then say hello to the holocaust again. (i have been doing it in history so its still fresh in my mind)

i also agree with cindy. No one says no to the penguin :cool:

But to be able to speak everyones language and talk so many tongues. How cool would that be?? All those languages that are nearly forgotten could be revived. :cool:

That's regardless, you said that if you could speak all langyages then you could talk to armies. That's true, but they wouldn't listen to you.

Wealth's the one for me.

they would. Just think about it. To be able to speak everyones tongue gives you the added advantage. You'd ouse charisma and be a great diplomat. They couldn't resist.

power without language is useless..u can not have power over anything and anybode unless you can express your self (which is very hard if you dont have language)

and through money you can not express your feelings as sufficiently as with words..imagine you love somebody..you can give him/her everything he/she wants..but you will NEVER be able to say I LOVE YOU..

I go for language!

So if I went to Iraq and told all the terrorist there (in Arabic) to stop terrorising people do you think they'd listen to me? No.

I can speak the same language as George Bush but if I went and told him I didn't agree with his policies would he listen to me? No.
