Fearful words like “poverty” and “death” can trigger fight-or-flight responses in the amygdala, and negative words .. Read more like “no” can release stress-producing hormones and neuroreceptors that can interrupt normal brain function. Those words can separate children from parents, imprison people for crimes, and condemn individuals to death. From day one, we train law students to be precise and to choose their words carefully. We teach that words can be used to assault, defame, create a hostile environment, and inflict emotional distress. And we note that the very first amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the use of words: free speech and a free press. Technology has impacted how we choose and use our words. But the sheer volume of words being shared can dampen the impact of any given statement.
