Hello. I want to ask how to use the verb "accomplish?"

"Accomplish" can be used with things, not humans, as subject like follows?

Languages accomplish our daily life.

Thank you.

    Yes, accomplish can be used with things as a subject, but not in the way you suggest. Since accomplish means "to bring to a successful conclusion or end", it's hard to see how "Languages end our daily life"!

    An automatic machine can accomplish a routine task, an organisation can accomplish a major project...

    That particular sentence doesn't work, I'm afraid. :(

    But you could have something like:
    This book accomplishes its aim of teaching us how to use languages in our daily lives.

    Donny, thank you for your advice.

    So, how about this sentence?

    Languages accomplish many roles in our daily lives.
