Linguistics can be an interesting field of study. Nearly all humans use language and it is, indeed, considered to be an integral part of being human. More interesting is the huge amount of languages that are spoken (about 6000 at present), each of which different in grammar and vocabulary. Yet, in this veritable forest of possibilities, this seeming chaos of potentialities, order can be found. Rules can be determined that are the same for all languages, not just grammatically but also in the distribution of word-meaning.
