Some conlangers I know develop languages to be used in sci-fi/fantasy novels, others just for knowledge's sake.
I'm studying (rather, want to study) linguistics so I know how people communicate and hopefully bridge the gaps between different languages (hence all my IAL work).
So, for what reason did you decide to start studying linguistics? Is there a particular goal or product you wish fulfilled by it?
Just curious :)
