Spotlight on Language

When one is introduced or introduces oneself as a linguist, the most predictable question is: “How many languages do you speak”. This happens because most people think that linguistics is the ability to speak many languages. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The purpose of the entries in this section of www marimbapublications co. ke is to throw some light on the science known as linguistics for the benefit of the non-linguist as well as to those who are beginning the academic journey in linguistics.
