Where is the love? How Language Can Reorient Us Back to Love’s Purpose is a linguistic examination of the word "love" in Indo-European and African languages. This text essentially asks the question, "How does our understanding of the word love, linguistically, affect our application of the concept in our everyday lives (in intimate and communal relationships)?" We further ask, "Does this word have an African origin, and if so, are there any differences in their meanings?" How are these differences, if any, translated into experience in their respective locations? The bigger question we are asking is, "How does language shape human behavior using the concept of love as research focus?"
