Kukulkan city writing

The written language on a wall in Kukulkan's city

"...the only tool diplomacy has is language."
– Hodin, 2268 ("The Mark of Gideon")

Countless different spoken, written, and gestural languages were used by different cultures throughout space. Generally, universal translators were able to surmount the language barrier between different groups, allowing interstellar society to exist. They were not always successful, however. (ENT: "Vox Sola") The study of language was known as linguistics. Often, when attempting to communicate with an unknown race, several languages were broadcast in an attempt to find one that might be understood by the hearer. (TOS: "Spock's Brain")

Children often found new languages easier to learn than adults did. (TNG: "Dark Page")
