Sprache wurde für mich erst nach einem längeren Auslandsaufenthalt interessant. Damals habe ich gelernt, dass man tatsächlich in einer anderen Sprache denken und träumen kann. Man kann dadurch sogar einen Teil seiner Muttersprache (Schwäbisch) verlernen.

Seither interessiere ich mich dafür, wie verschieden Sprachen und Dialekte sind und wie gleich sie doch wieder sind, welche Nuancen eine Aussage klar machen oder verwässern, wie Mehrdeutigkeiten Spaß machen können.

Mit Sprache kann man jonglieren, balancieren und ohne Netz vom Hochseil stürzen.

comment Of starting and stopping
I believe this question does need a specific context to be answerable in a sensible way (i.e. other than a long list of dictionary entries). Look how many synonyms start and stop have in English!
