Do We All Speak The Same Language?

Poets and writers often muse on the relationsship beteween the shape and sound.  Do words have more significance than just being a random collection of abstract symbols?  Poets know instinctively when a word is  right for a particular use.Those of us who take words, their meanings and appearances, seriously have often thought there might be some real. hidden meanings therein.  Here is some serious research that seems to suggest there is.  And what's more, there might even be some sort of prehistoric, pre language link between the world around and our use of descriptive language. It might be possible to reconstruct the basis of all human language and, perhaps, point to some sort of universal themes that would enable all humans to converse together. Article from New Scientist.
