Reflection Questions
  • What translation of a set of documents in human history has had the greatest impact on global civilization compared to any other? And, what possible significance is there in the fact that this translation did not represent a document originating in a politically and militarily powerful state?

  • What are the “horizontal components” of a language?

  • How easy or difficult is it for language and culture to be distinguished?
