What Makes A Language… A Language? – Martin Hilpert

What Makes A Language… A Language? – Martin Hilpert

What is it?

The YouTube video What Makes A Language… A Language? – Martin Hilpert by the YouTube channel TED-Ed, here is the description for this video:

Dig into the distinction between a language and a dialect, and uncover the history of standardized languages.

Outside of China, Mandarin, and Cantonese are often referred to as Chinese dialects, despite being even more dissimilar than Spanish and Italian.

On the other hand, speakers of Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish, which are three distinct languages, can usually communicate with each other in their native tongues.

So, when is speech considered a dialect versus a language? Martin Hilpert investigates.
