What is Linguistics?

Linguistics is the study of human language and all its aspects: sound patterns, word formation, sentence structure, meaning, and language use. The aim of linguistics is to explain how languages work, how language and society interact, how language is acquired, and how languages change.

Linguistics is useful for anyone who is interested in learning about the nature of language as a system of communication. The study of linguistics is essential for those who plan to use language in their future career. Language teaching, speech therapy, cross-cultural communication, translation and interpretation, machine translation, social work, and criminal justice are just a few examples of such careers.
