Applied Linguistics
Applied linguistics is an interdisciplinary field of linguistics which identifies, investigates, and offers solutions to language-related real-life problems. Some of the academic fields related to applied linguistics are education, psychology, communication research, anthropology, and sociology.
Linguistics
Linguistics is the scientific study of language, and involves an analysis of language form, language meaning, and language in context. The earliest activities in the documentation and description of language have been attributed to the 6th century BC Indian grammarian Pāṇini, who wrote a formal description of the Sanskrit language in his Aṣṭādhyāyī.

Away with him, away with him! he speaks Latin.
William Shakespeare, Henry VI, Part II (c. 1590-91), Act IV, scene 7, line 62.
Linguistics
Omnia Græce!
Cum sit turpe magis nostris nescire Latine.
Everything is Greek, when it is more shameful to be ignorant of Latin.
Linguistics
* * * Philologists, who chase
A panting syllable through time and space
Start it at home, and hunt it in the dark,
To Gaul, to Greece, and into Noah's Ark.
William Cowper, Retirement, line 691.
EU-funded scientists successfully developed a system that generates electricity from low-temperature waste heat ranging from 60 to 120 °C. Harnessing low-grade heat should help to significantly mitigate the negative environmental impact of industrial plants.
