I love the structure of language. I always have. Grammar. I love it. I adore it. Semantics. Word origins. Word structure. Sentence structure. The way people and individuals and groups speak and converse. And poetry. It took me a while to like that one.
I like the way people and individuals write. Their individual style and structure. I like the way words are arranged on a page and the ways it makes me feel. I am a linguist. Yes. Not to be confused with a writer. For I love language…not necessarily communicating in the written form. The two are different. And being a linguist is more fun, in my opinion.
I’ve known this for some time. In fact I wrote about it over a year ago and specifically said it was something I’d revisit and at the time only to “feel about it.” I guess I “feel” like revisiting today…
Language and communication. So, as an actress, I am a communicator by trade. Using language (verbal and non-verbal). Language is all I have. No wonder it fascinates me so! Hmmmm, perhaps as a linguist I can be a truly transcendent actress! Haha! I love it!
