“To speak a language is to take on a world, a culture,” says Frantz Fanon. To understand a culture fully, one must first be dedicated to learning its native language. Linguists well as our body of literature play a crucial role in unlocking the secrets behind the world’s multitude of languages, and helping people understand how the human mind works across time and space, from different eras and individual cultures.
Where spoken word, in its millions of years of evolution, fails to provide insights on historic and modern literature, linguists, with their uncanny curiosity, help convey messages from languages long dead and forgotten. Thus a discourse in the field of language, linguistics and literature is significant to gather and understand different perspective in our culture and the society between the past and the present.
