Sustaining Science through Language in a Pluralistic World
Ogunsiji, Yemi; Ojo, J. O.; Farinde, R. O.

In any society, the role of language has always been a very vital and incontrovertible one. The bible made us to understand that at the beginning, there was word and the word was with God and God was the word. The world and all that we have therein were created through word. This makes one to wonder about the power in language today. At all levels in life, we make use of language to perform one operation or the other. At the level of education, there is no doubt that language is the tool that we use not minding the area of one's study. This is why we can boldly say that language is the vehicle through which whatever we do in the world can forge ahead. With all these as our launching pad, this paper looks into the necessity and the intermingling of science and language. It examines some areas of complementarities in the two fields where effective teaching, learning, comprehension and positive application can effectively take place. Since science is the in-thing in the present world, it then becomes imperative that language will continue to sustain and promote the growth of science in the present global setting.
