What is language? Why is language considered the unique human phenomenon? What is the linguistic universalism? What is gender language? Why do some languages have masculine and feminine forms? Is Japanese language unique? Based on typological linguistic studies, I argue that the language is the most powerful human cultural factor which proves that all humans are equal. In order to discuss this, I will explain the relationship between language, speech organs, and culture, by giving examples from English, Japanese, Indonesian, Hebrew, Arabic, etc. I expect that the audience will then consider his/her language from typological perspectives.
