Multilingualism: Multiple Personalities or Just a Diverse One?

Governed by the needs of globalization, I believe it is fair to state that multilingualism is becoming a MUST in the increasingly multicultural business world.

Multilingualism: Multiple Personalities or Just a Diverse One?

Apart from simply possessing more than one language, multilingual individuals are usually more culturally competent (linguistic knowledge decreases cross-cultural barriers), have a more efficient brain (take a look here), and generally more flexible in their thinking. But how much more flexible exactly? A recent article in the New Republic magazine suggests that multilinguals are so flexible that they actually have multiple personalities. Referring to early sociolinguistic and ethnographic studies done, the author notes that bilingual participants in experiments were found to change the way they would interpret situations, the way they would finish sentences, and the descriptions of personal experiences along with switching the language.

Change of Language, Change of Personality? Multilinguals Have Multiple Personalities. In an essay published on Monday, New Republic Senior Editor Noam Scheiber—who grew up speaking both Hebrew and English—explains why he stopped speaking only Hebrew to his three-year-old daughter.

Multilinguals Have Multiple Personalities

“My Hebrew self turns out to be much colder, more earnest, and, let’s face it, less articulate," he writes. "In English, my natural sensibility is patient and understated. My style in Hebrew was hectoring and prosecutorial.” I understand the feeling. My not-so-fluent French “self” is most comfortable talking about classroom supplies. Women in Love Summary. The novel opens with the sisters Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen chatting about marriage one morning at their father’s house in Beldover.

Women in Love Summary

Gudrun has recently returned home from art school in London. The two later decide to drop by a local wedding, where they first see Gerald Crich and Rupert Birkin, the two men with whom they will develop affairs that drive the action of the novel. Birkin is a school inspector with extremely unconventional attitudes about life, and Gerald is the heir to the local mining operation that is the central industry of Beldover. Birkin and Gerald hate each other passionately at the beginning of the novel, but after a chance encounter on the way to London they begin to become friends. Rupert is haunted by his lingering attachment to Hermione Roddice, an aristocratic woman whom he loathes but finds difficult to abandon.

Birkin decides to move into a mill house on Willey Water Lake, and Ursula begins visiting him there. Sons and Lovers by D. H. Lawrence. T.S. Eliot Reads His Modernist Masterpieces "The Waste Land" and "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" Did you know T.S.

T.S. Eliot Reads His Modernist Masterpieces "The Waste Land" and "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"

Eliot’s portentous and heavily allusive 1922 masterpiece “The Waste Land” was originally titled “He Do the Police in Different Voices,” a quote from Charles Dickens’ Our Mutual Friend? Filled with references to Dante’s Divine Comedy, Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, and James Frazier’s The Golden Bough, this most famous of high modernist poems—scourge of millions of college freshman each year—was a very different animal before notorious modernist impresario Ezra Pound got his hands on it. Pound’s heavy reworking is responsible for the poem you hear above, read by Eliot himself. The first image in the video shows Pound’s marginal annotations. In the video above listen to Eliot read his second-most famous work, “The Love Song of J.

Multilingualism: Johnson: Do different languages confer different personalities? J. J.L.Lemke On-line Office Language and Identity Development No one seems to doubt that language, both in its communicative functions, and in its systems of semantic classification, plays a major role in identity development.


I have mainly spoken so far about the communicative-interactional function, but what is most specific about the contribution of language arises from its categorial semantics. Natural language construes relations among types and between types and instances of types. It makes meaning by creating differences of kind, far more than by creating differences of degree.

Language and personality

The press headlines (not many, so far) echo the same idea: "How Switching Language Can Change Your Personality" (Reuters and New Scientist, published at ABC News); "Switching languages could cause you to switch personalities" (Discovery Reports, Canada); "Change in language alters personality" (IT Examiner, India — subhead "Oh, fickle woman"); "People switch personality with language" (Times of India); "For bilinguals, a distinct personality for each language" (Agence France Presse).

Change of Language, Change of Personality? Part II. In a first post on this topic (see here), I discussed whether bilinguals who speak two or more languages change their personality when they change language.

Change of Language, Change of Personality? Part II

I reproduced personal testimonies and cited two studies that seem to give a positive answer. I then argued that it is the environment, the culture and the interlocutors that cause bilinguals to change attitudes, feelings and behaviors (along with language)–and not their language as such. In essence, there does not seem to be a direct causal relationship between language and personality. My post received many comments which I went through carefully.
