I had a conversation with someone the other day who didn’t understand the importance of linguistics – the study of language. Honestly, I didn’t find this all too surprising, because this person also adheres to the misleading idea that evolution is “just a theory”. Red flag #1 that a person really needs to attain a better grasp on linguistics. Though I can’t blame him too much either, seeing as how many people fail to understand the scientific importance of the term ‘theory’, as opposed to the layman’s understanding of said term.
