Linguistics is a field of study focusing on the structure of language. Completely captivating and impossibly satisfying.
A 2 year old child learns on average 9 new concepts a day. Somehow the brains of toddlers can intuit multiple abstract concepts over the course of a day. Do you remember what it was like to understand what a drain is? a lock? to sweat? to worry? to forget? glass? digestion? Linguistics explores the way people use language and its connection to the brain/cognitive development.

adj; of or relating to language
It's good to have enough linguistic skill that you wouldn't call something an adjective and then use it in your example sentence as a noun, dumbass.

Someone who gets a strange joy from correcting other peoples spelling and grammatical errors on the Internet.Often Anal retentive and can count their friends on one hand.

Referring to a person of this nature as a Linguistic will drive them insane, as its not the correct use of the word. Also see Grammar Nazi.
