Linguistics reflects on the nature of language itself and on human beings as creators and users of language. Students of linguistics generally prepare themselves to enter professional fields as translators, literacy specialists, teachers of English as a second language, foreign language specialists, or elementary and secondary school teachers. Studies focus on the systems of language- sound, meaning, and phrase and sentence structure, both in the present and through time.
