El lado negativo de nuestro idioma

Hablando entre Lenguas

Por Patricia Pedraza / Editorial

“La muerte y la vida están en el poder de nuestra lengua”, reza un proverbio bíblico y esto quiere decir simplemente que lo que hablamos es lo que atraemos. Si hablamos positividad, atraemos positividad, y viceversa   si vamos por allí hablando negatividad y quejándonos por nuestros problemas, precisamente atraeremos eso,  problemas, negatividad,  etc. Sin duda alguna decirlo es muy fácil,  sin embargo, el aplicarlo es la prueba más difícil, es también la prueba  que todos  queremos  pasar día con día.

Haciendo un análisis de nuestra lengua y nuestra cultura llegué a la conclusión de que este famoso proverbio está en chino que lo pasemos  positivamente porque simple y sencillamente nuestro idioma es “negativo.” El español es abundantemente, romántico y rico pero la triste realidad es que también es muy negativo.

uanl

Como todo en la vida se empieza con lo bueno,  comenzamos con las raíces del español que son buenas. Son cuatro; ben, bien, bon y buen,  derivadas del latín “bene”. Tenemos  palabras positivas  como benévolo, bienaventurado, bonanza, beneficio, bondad,  benevolencia, buenaventura, etc.

Etimológicamente solo tenemos una  raíz que es negativa  “mal” del latín “male”“malus”. El problema de esto son  las palabras,  frases o actitudes que se desprenden de esta raíz negativa porque son mucho más que las positivas y por si fuera poco se proliferan.  Tenemos  frases como “me muero de la risa, me gusta horrores” o también  la frase relativamente  nueva que inventaron en Monterrey, México para describir algo súper bueno,   dicen,  “está matón”. Después nos quejamos de la violencia que se vive en la sociedad sin detenernos a pensar que lo que hablamos, atraemos.

La negatividad de nuestro idioma estriba  en un buen porcentaje en lo cultural. La mayoría de nuestras conversaciones por lo general son iniciadas con la palabra  –no-; ¿No fuiste al cine  ayer? ¿No has comido ese platillo?  ¿No te diste cuenta? ¿No está tu mamá? ¿No vas a venir conmigo?

De hecho al enseñar el español como segunda lengua, así se presenta el concepto como  las Palabras Negativas, que son   nada-nadie-nunca-tampoco-ninguno-ni. Cabe mencionar que mientras en inglés usar dos negaciones en un enunciado es totalmente incorrecto, en español se presume que esto es válido y muy correcto.

Si analizamos la frase  o enunciado, “Yo nunca tengo nada ni nadie a mi favor”, nos quedamos asombrados  de que la única palabra positiva de aquí es –favor-.

Independientemente de quien la diga, que de por sí ya es una persona negativa,  la estructura y la cultura  de la frase sale invariablemente negativa.  Es decir, actuamos y hablamos  negativamente por inercia.

Si esta misma frase la  empleáramos  positivamente, podríamos decir  algo así como “tengo poco a mi favor”, de esta forma  estaríamos evitando las palabras negativas, nunca-nada-ni-nadie.

La pregunta es,  ¿cómo podemos aplicar la positividad  en nuestro entorno si nuestra lengua y cultura es negativa?  Creo que la respuesta  es rápida; con mucho esfuerzo, práctica y dedicación. ¿Difícil? Sí, pero no imposible.

En los últimos tiempos se ha registrado un movimiento fuerte  de gente tratando de adoptar un nuevo y positivo vocabulario en su  hablar diario y si bien es cierto que el paso es lento, también es cierto que cada paso que damos es seguro.

Vivimos en un mundo cambiante donde todo es posible. Nosotros tenemos el poder, usémoslo y hagamos lucir positivo en todo momento a nuestro idioma y nuestra cultura que ya de por si es abundantemente rico.
