Physics of Bubbles May Explain Language Patterns Summary: A new study reveals dialects move outwards from population centers, which may explain why some cities have their own dialects, researchers say. Source: University of Portsmouth. Language patterns could be predicted by simple laws of physics, a new study has found. Dr James Burridge from the UniversityContinue reading “Physics of Bubbles May Explain Language Patterns”
