Glossolalia - Speaking in Tongues

In 1972, William J. Samarin, a linguist from the University of Toronto, published a thorough assessment of glossolalia (the phenomena of "speaking in tongues" among pentecostals and charismatics). He concluded that it was "neither internally organized nor systematically related to the world man perceives".

Of course, if it could be, then it would be open for linguistic dicepherment and would no longer fall under the class of "unknown tongues" or "mysteries"!!

"For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries." (1Cor.14:12)
