    we all know language sense,it's ability of us,.especially when we are learning foreign languages,it's very useful,and showed by our pratise of language very much.if you change a language,the language sense chang too.you can base one language to one language sense,or several languageto one mixed or well-combined language sense.
    so,the indeed of languange,is language sense.

    just asking here, what is your first language? your use of english is quite skilled for someone who has only been speaking it for two or three years, about average for 4-6 years, and flawed if you have been speaking it for 7+ years.

    your use of the word sense to describe language, is not quite accurate. language is a skill of humanity, a communication tool. a sense is like seeing, hearing, feeling, smell, and taste. those are our basic five senses. you're born able to do them, they are raw sensory inputs.

    spoken language is simply the training of your brain to equate certain sounds with a percieved meaning. and speaking is an ability that we have to synthesize sounds. the sounds that we do use in language are used because they are usually the easiest to make. written language is an evolution of our ability to equate symbols with meanings, and depends only on our sense of sight.

    so, language isn't truely a sense merely an emergent factor from various human skills and senses. if someone truely had a "language sense" it would perhaps be the ability to determine which language was being spoken by somebody, which makes no sense because that is just a sense of hearing coupled with a knowledge of the language.


    physics: accurate, objective, boring
    chemistry: accurate if physics is accurate, slightly subjective, you can blow stuff up
    biology: accurate if chemistry is accurate, somewhat subjective, fascinating
    religion: accurate if people are always right, highly subjective, bewildering

    Sir,you can ask old people and longsighted people,they will tell you there will be several times in there life that suddenly they find out "the word *** senses like this".words can be sensed if you know it thoroughly,it's an known skill between Chinese Qikong trainers,and it's not only for chinese,also can be found in English.
    'words make sense',we all know that,the only reason we don't "sense" them,is we don't accept it all,also maybe we just sense the whole language.
    and ,if you sense enough quantity of words in one language,you will be like the main character in "prison break",or simply called a "cyclo" live a normal life.
    if you can imagine the word "accept",in the form of brain action,you will know why.
    by the way,thomas edison and some others are ones of them.
    i was one of them,too. but now maybe not,cause now i wear longsighted glasses,that's the simpiest way quit this state,and,the other way of quiting this,is to ask yourself questions,and some other stuffs,you will quit this state,too.

    sir,you say "language sense" is a wrong combination,or to say, an unproper one,so you can search for it on internet.so many people use it,"language sense" is surely part of our culture.

    part of your culture doesn't mean part of the universe's truth. the old saying which no good philosopher is unaware of; "Vox populi, vox Dei" is quite wrong here.

    and if you in fact do have such "language sense" which by the meanings of the parts of its name reffers to an affinity for language, then why is it that you have sub-elementary grammar in your sentence structure? your views sir, i believe are not the result of unbiased observation which cannot be explained with current models, but the result of observations tinted by the fact that you think this idea is "nice" or "cool" and by a distinct lack of understanding of the physical laws around you.

    please, before responding to this, make sure that you possess in your memory the knowledge of at least one full year of schooling in each physics, chemistry, and biology. from one month of studying biology you should be able to see that language is a communication tool which has no basic sense associated with it, it is not a raw sensory input, but a creation of the mind when signals are sent from the ear in certain patterns which are learned, not inhereted. you will find that the last phrase i use is of the very greatest importance, all senses are inhereted parts of the body which you can no more rid yourself of than you can choose to grow wings, language on the other hand is something that if you are not taught throughout your life, you will never have the ability to understand.

    Sir,I think science is not only methodology,also views of the world,you see the world in each degree,the world will seem to e different,though the world is a whole,sceinces are just pictures of it,in some sense,they are distinguished.
    So,one subject won't disturb other,like chemistry is different from physics.the combination of subjects is to see the both sides gradually from one degree to another,like skills in film,and once you decide to see it in one view,it will be a new subject,maybe what we talk about is"body English" or "brain English".
    You said that sense is inherented,not learned,so I have a view,if you don't know the word "smell",you can still do it ,just in totally your style and that 's your sense.So there is a question:Can a wolf raised boy think?And,can animal think?If they can ,i say,they have languages,just undefind,maybe unspeaked.i mean language ,is something youused to think,as "language is tool to think",but not tool for communicationAnd language is not only be passed from one generation to another,it 's created,from one word to thousands words,it develop in our brain,and formed,then speak out,and that 's from our sense,and we use the same thing to feel our language,that's language sense ,the one we use to understand and create language.it's a sense we get from our birth,a sense based on other senses.
    the key is we can think without learning words,we can create our own words,so we can think without learning our mother language ,just use the words formed in your brain,just not be sensed enough to speak out,that's why there is longsighted people,and why there are spelling mistakes:don't you think it's result of brain action?it's the easiest creation of language,can explain the evolution from latin to English.what i mean"first language",is something like this:I think you won't think a baby only learned "papa","mama" will think only in these two words,and we can think using this "first language" for very long time,at least 15 years in my case,and so I GET LONGSIGHTED.language is skill we can develop it by create one word to another,language is world view,so language is sense.the formed language we use is just reference,the language our offsprings use is a future thing that will be create and developed.By what?the answer is our,our sense.
