A linguist is one who studies foreign languages. A linguist is by no means required to be a professor, though he might; by the same token, he might not. A linguist is one who takes it upon himself to learn languages other than his own so that, one day, they are no longer foreign, but become part of the self.
This blog is dedicated to those who are studying two languages in particular: Japanese (日本語、nihongo) and English (英語、eigo).
As studying Japanese has given me new insights on my own native English, I believe studying any foreign language can give a person greater insights into language itself (言語そのもの).
I invite all readers to join me on this journey.
