Modern linguists primarily concern themselves with either theoretical or applied linguistics.
Multilingualism is the use of more than one language , either by an individual speaker or by a group of speakers. It is believed that multilingual speakers outnumber monolingual speakers in the world's population. Always useful to traders, multilingualism is advantageous for people wanting to participate in globalization and cultural openness. People who speak several languages are also called polyglots. Multilingual speakers have acquired and maintained at least one language during childhood, the so-called first language L1. The first language sometimes also referred to as the mother tongue is usually acquired without formal education, by mechanisms about which scholars disagree. It is common for young simultaneous bilinguals to be more proficient in one language than the other.

Society and culture influence the words that we speak, and the words that we speak influence society and culture. Such a cyclical relationship can be difficult to understand, but many of the examples throughout this chapter and examples from our own lives help illustrate this point. One of the best ways to learn about society, culture, and language is to seek out opportunities to go beyond our typical comfort zones. Studying abroad, for example, brings many challenges that can turn into valuable lessons. The following example of such a lesson comes from my friend who studied abroad in Vienna, Austria.
Neurolinguistics is the study of how language is represented in the brain: that is, how and where our brains store our knowledge of the language or languages that we speak, understand, read, and write, what happens in our brains as we acquire that knowledge, and what happens as we use it in our everyday lives. Neurolinguists try to answer questions like these: What about our brains makes human language possible — why is our communication system so elaborate and so different from that of other animals? Does language use the same kind of neural computation as other cognitive systems, such as music or mathematics? Where in your brain is a word that you've learned? If you know two languages, how do you switch between them and how do you keep them from interfering with each other?
