About Language

Language is something that most of us develop naturally and without thinking – we just seem to absorb it as we grow, and we then continue to develop our language skills through reading and writing. But have you ever considered the specifics of how language is formed, its structure and the meaning behind it? Linguistics covers such topics and you can now study a linguistics course through one of our convenient online offerings.

Modern linguistics as a discipline developed in the 18th century, and has since evolved to become a major area of study. Famed linguist Noam Chomsky has this to say about language:

‘Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation.’
