From phylogeny to ontogeny arises the complex phenomenon of language. This paper aims to illustrate this complexity of language by describing the functions and areas of the brain responsible for listening, speaking, and reading, followed by an exploration of the interaction of emotion and cognition. Furthermore, the paper briefly addresses the special fascination of children's language development as well as the relationship between music and language and the positive effects of music on language development. Additionally, the paper touches upon the topic of “reading” in an application-oriented manner.
