Do you wonder how languages originated and whether animal communication is different from human language? Have you thought about why and how languages change? Have you thought about what all languages have in common? What does a person’s language have to do with where they live, their age, their gender, their occupations, their cultures, their social groups, and the historical times in which they live? Have you wondered how and why people learn other languages? Are you interested in how one goes about teaching another language? You will find the answers to all of these questions – and more – when you study Linguistics.
