Culture, at its various levels, unifies in a series of strata, to the extent that they come into contact with each other, a greater or lesser number of individuals who understand each other 's mode of expression to varying degrees, etc. . **The Ojibwa has lost both their culture and identity, but they will survive. The final words spoken by Nanapush are one of continuing resistance to domination and assimilation. “People become aware of their culture when they stand at its boundaries: when they encounter other cultures, or when they become aware of other ways of doing things, or merely of contradictions to their own culture (Cohen, Anthony P 1985)” The novelist clearly narrates the native people’s constant struggle to preserve their land and culture.
Language’s Disconnection Between Cultures and Individuals Language can be defined as the recipe for human communication through verbal, and nonverbal techniques. Our use of language emerges from interactions between one another, giving uniqueness to the multitude of cultures that exist. Generations are detached from each other as the result of not only cultural differences, but through dialects, idioms, and slang.

The language we use creates a barrier between separate cultures and exposes our personal identity as demonstrated through Mother Tongue, Slang in America and The F Word.

As these variables change, customs and ideas are directly affected. As a particularly idealistic culture, North Korea is recognized as favoring an enclosed environment, sealing itself from the rest of the world and establishing its mysterious nature. The country is widely known for their political dealings, which furthermore highly regulates and filters the information that they release to the rest of the world. However, by surveying the environment geographically, politically and religiously, we hope to better understand the culture of this isolated civilization.
Let me cite three such difficulties that I take to be important, all having to do with language. First, there is art’s own project … of restoring freshness to a much-handled language, essentially an effort toward finding a language in which making art is possible at all. This remains a ground theme, as potent, problematically, today as it was a century ago. Secondly, there is the political and social contamination of language by its use in manipulation of various kinds over time and the effort to find what might be called a “clean” language. Finally, there is the pressure on language from contemporary culture in the broadest sense I mean our devouring commercial culture — which results in a double impoverishment: theft of complexity from the reader, theft of the reader from the

Who would’ve thought that the way you enunciate plays a server role in your everyday life? It would be nice if everyone could be seen as equal in all ways, but another aspect to modern-day inequality is how quickly others judge the intelligence of a person based on their accent. I’m here to prove there is extreme prejudice on languages in modern day society and how they affect one 's self-identity. Even with all of the equal rights acts being discussed this category is much less stated and more of a natural instinct of everyone to judge one by their ways of speaking.
