How our native language shapes our grammar

This video shows that there is a structure to the formation of sentences and that all languages follow it. There are many ways to organise a sentence but they all contain the same elements. This is even true when translated to hand gestures to explain a picture when the person doesn’t know a sign language.

Hope you enjoy watching
