Night on Earth: Language Hopscotch

Wittgenstein said that 'The limits of my language means the limits of my world.', does that mean that foreign words and expressions that we can’t translate don’t really exist in English? Do you lapse into Hokkien when you’re angry? Is it more difficult to say I love you in Malay? Does speaking different languages change your personality? The power words to create our worlds is explored in your weekly digest of global culture, art and life.
