Hi Hicham.the answer to the question you asked is as vast as the field of sociolinguistics itself.But anyway.I would give you an idea about how language is socially structured by this simple sentence " language and language use may differ according to one of these social factors,gender(women do not talk like men),social class( lower class's speech differs a great deal from a high social class's, age also affects language use,etc.I might email books that will help you find answers to your question if necessary Smile

In my view, the languages are formed with the help of A. phonosemantics, B. geographical situation, C. social values and the D. vocal organs. Out of the above four, the “social values” has its own importance

I am giving you an example of influence of social values on languages. An Indian, calls his father as /pɪTɑ/. The /pɪTɑ/ denotes the “towards conditional protection /pɪ/ offering entity /Tɑ/”, that is „the entity offering protection with conditions‟. In the case of English, the /fɑđǝr/ denotes “unbound approving entity /fɑ/, offered /đǝ/, involve /r/”. That is “involve in offering the un-bound approval”. Both are having approval from father, but the Indian has to face the conditions and English does not. This difference is due to different social and cultural values, as there are more responsibilities and boundaries of an Indian son towards the family in compared to those of the English son.
(T is replacement for plosive dental sound. IPA is not possible here).

But the dental plosives in IPA aren't any special symbols?

[t] and [d] ... or if you wanted aspiration [tʰ] [dʰ], then the other T-related symbols -> [θ] [t͡ʃ ] [t͡s] [ʈ]

As for the rest of that post, I have no idea what you're talking about sorry.

I need plosive-dental (very near to the fricative-dental /θ/), which is a Hindi pronunciation, available in the IPA chart, but I could not able to type in the post.
‘piTa’ is the Hindi translation of the English word ‘father’. I have given you the phonosemantics of both the words. Both words are giving different meanings, and that difference can be visualized in the difference in social values of these two (India and England) cultures.
The father provides the ‘unconditional approval’ to his child. That ‘unconditional approval’ converts in to ‘courage or self esteem’ in child`s future life. If that approval is ‘conditioned’, the developed self esteem will also be ‘conditioned’. Use a little knowledge of psychology, you can understand it easily.
My mother tongue is not English, so I might not explained in proper way, I am sorry for that.
