Opinion, by Antoni Mir: Multilingualism means business

We never think when we go to the fridge to get a yoghurt that this word has come to us via Turkish. Or similarly, it never crosses our minds when talking on a mobile phone that the term was originally Greek. Words do not respect borders and thanks to languages our culture grows. It is this concept that lies behind the exhibition La mar de llengües. Parlar a la Mediterrània in the Casa de Cultura in Girona. (Full story in printed edition).
