Abstract:One has identified three misconceptions about language and its study, namely linguistics. Their persistence is intrinsically dangerous, as there are many misconceptions in the minds of the people. Yet these misconceptions are worth a look because they have been uttered by people teaching in the field of humanities.
The first misconception is that there are very distinct languages of culture and languages of civilisation. The second misconception revolves around the idea that the metaphor is the only thing that matters. The third misconception lies in the blunt statement that linguists only ever draw tables.
The purpose of this short work is to show that humanities ought to be seen as an integrated and developing field.
Key words:misconception, language, linguistics
