Do Linguists know lots of Languages?

In the last post, we had discussed who a linguist is and I hope you guys might have found that post useful.

In today’s post, I am going to share my opinion about a very small question that many people have regarding Linguists.

Do Linguists know lots of languages?

The simple answer to this question is that it is not a requirement for a Linguist to know more than one language. But most linguists know most than one language and some even are known to be very quick at learning a new language.

The kind of work that linguists do is scientific research on phonetics, grammar, the syntax, and the way a language progresses and spreads across geographical locations and history.
