What do the words “perro,” “dog,” “canis,” “gos” and “собака” have in common? They all describe the same reality, although they do not resemble in shape at all (besides the fact that some share the same number of letters, they’re singular and almost all masculine). The five of them are an arbitrary chain of signs that acquire meaning thanks to a socio cultural convention. The epistemological path between reality (realities) and its name have always amazed me, which is why learning languages is one of my passions. This activity constantly reminds me that there is not one, but millions of voices and ways to conceive our passage through this earth.
