Abstract

It is obvious that languages play an important role in various aspects of our daily lives. Their role is not only limited to communication, rather it extends into the vast branches of knowledge and human sciences. Languages are capable of developing human knowledge and extending it for the benefit of human kind. The general importance of languages justifies the need for a scientific and objective study of the relationship between languages and education. This research aims to identify a scientific methodology in the field of linguistics (living languages) which will assist researchers in determining the most expressive language in delivering knowledge and scientific facts - a language that is powerful, expressive, and influential. Despite the recognition of the importance of languages and their role in education, not much research has been done to investigate the various issues pertaining to this matter. True, studies on the relationship between languages and knowledge exist, but, there are few that elaborate upon the effects of languages on education.The following research attempts to present a foundational presentation of the effects of languages in educational development and how the positive effects may be incorporated towards the development of human resources. This task has been divided within three chapters:. Chapter one discusses the characteristics of languages that are influential in the development of education. Chapter two presents a historical overview and analysis of the role of the Arabic language in the development of knowledge and human sciences. Chapter three examines the role of the “logic of language” in formulating styles of thinking in education.
