Ooh you’re also fascinated with Linguistics as well? I reach my hand out toward you as a friendly gesture of concurrence.
Yeah, I almost decided to major in Linguistics too, more specifically, Phonetics, because I’ve always been interested in the different sound inventories of languages, how they developed, and how they interacted with one another. I actually spent a lot of my free time back when I was younger learning about concepts such as the different articulations of the rhotic consonant, and how roundedness affected the sound quality of vowels, all sorts of fun stuff. Unfortunately, I was never gifted in the ways of language, and failing French over and over again (IT WAS THE ONLY CLASS I GOT Bs IN WAHHHHH) convinced me I would be the worst linguist ever. And so I went into nursing.
