"The English language is nobody's special property. It is the property of the imagination: it is the property of the language itself." - Derek Walcott.

Language has many sorts of power. One of these is the power to convey and interpret meaning. Have you ever read a description of a place that almost made you feel as if you were there? Have you come across a character in fiction who you feel you know at least as well as your best friend? Language can be used to incite emotions, change people's minds, create new worlds, make peace, destroy friendships. These are powerful acts.

Although you should practise your spellings and seek to understand how language is conventionally used, it is important to remember at all times that language changes, giving birth to new words and new meanings all the time.
