The constant growth of the population of England almost doubled its number every year. Everybody was busy with their own and intimidating lifestyles, businesses and even professions that they almost forgot the speed of time. But we may be wondering how these people or groups of people interacted with each other either in trading, mercantile, political or social acquaintances and contacts.
Several languages written and reported were used to speak by the natives of England before the Roman invasion. For lower classes they spoke less of the English language, French for noble type and Latin for religious groups. But, the idea is not just of simple type because it changes substantially over the period of time for it was not only for enjoyment or to amuse others. Why we used a certain language to offend someone and why? There is some unclear evidence that maybe English language is not a choice for the earliest kind of impoliteness. During the middle ages in England there were lots of dialects used and spoken before English such as old French which has been used to write amongst the nation’s travellers, courts, trade activities. Latin and Aramaic was the principal language for Christian studies, prayer and other religious activities. Hebrew was used up until 1290 when Jews were cast away in England while Old Occitan dialect was used by some individuals working in court to read and understand poems all about love and war. A very few student scholars knew Greek for it was limited only for those who could afford to study this language while on the other hand military expeditions undertaken by Christians in Europe knew a little of Arabic dialects.
Different people used distinct languages for various purposes but other aspects of communications were also present during and after England became an English empire. Radio transmissions or the use of waves continued to evolve into systems now used to communicate satellites many miles from the earth and submarines travelling to establish junction with the outside world. Telephone communication is a means to exchange ideas and thoughts, information, beliefs and knowledge with each other. Before electricity had been developed and stabilised all over the world not only for those who needed it but also to power and operate manufacturing and industry where most people worked, way back in the time Indians used smoke signals and drum sounds or beats to bring messages from one Indian community to another. Early man was satisfied with this process of communication until it proved to have progressed when telegraph and telephone became functioning in England and United States via a cable wire at any point of transmission. Not one, two or three but many significant enhancements were made until wireless telephone became excellent over telegraph since it uses air transference force as a medium of conveying messages.
Further studies show that by mixing all the ideas gathered from previous unsuccessful invention they could derive into a more advanced invention such as the electromagnetic wave based on the theory of speed of light. This is the root of the radio telegraph system which was invented in 1901 to transmit letters in the form of three dots code and lately with the appearance of the low, medium, and high frequency radio systems. Communications then evolved and continued to progress everywhere in England and all parts of the world.
