Linguistics is a field of study focusing on the structure of language. Completely captivating and impossibly satisfying.
A 2 year old child learns on average 9 new concepts a day. Somehow the brains of toddlers can intuit multiple abstract concepts over the course of a day. Do you remember what it was like to understand what a drain is? a lock? to sweat? to worry? to forget? glass? digestion? Linguistics explores the way people use language and its connection to the brain/cognitive development.
