The field of linguistics is concerned with the study of human language as a universal part of human behavior and thinking. Linguists seek to understand the common properties of human language, the place of language in human life and society, and the ways in which language is organized to fulfill the needs of the people it serves and the functions it performs. They take as their field of inquiry language in all its different forms and manifestations around the world.
