The very first topic of 2016 TEDxSalons in Belgrade would be language and linguistics. According to Wikipedia:
"Language is the ability to acquire and use complex systems of communication, particularly the human ability to do so, and a language is any specific example of such a system. The scientific study of language is called linguistics."
That is also one of the favorite topics on TED events globally, so here is a short selection of talks dedicated to our ability and necessity to communicate.
