How language is processed by your brain?

Language processing was once thought to be only localized to the left hemisphere of the brain in areas identified like Broca's (associated with speech production) and Wernicke's area (associated with speech comprehension). Brain imaging technology is continuing to change our understanding of the regions of the brain involved with language, suggesting processing is not so straightforward. Different words have been shown to trigger different regions of the brain. Bilingual language processing research shows the plasticity of the human brain and its ability to grow and develop new neural pathways when people learn new languages. A recent article from CNN looks into our current understanding on how language is processed by our brains.
