After obtaining his undergraduate degree in Mathematics at the University of Tel Aviv, he went on to pursue a PhD in Linguistics at the University of Cambridge. His mathematical background can be seen in many of his studies concerning language when discussing structures and comparing lingual traits as results of socio-cultural changes. In this particular article, the LSA will use Deutscher’s ideas and findings on communication and the process thereof to explore the possible emergence of exclusive global languages. Globalization has opened the door for an abundance of socio-cultural changes far and wide, which includes the transmission and acclimatization of language.

When this rupture in the transmission occurs, the meaning is lost, which greatly impacts the discourse.
