Polyglot GRE Vocabulary Flashcard

/ˈpɒl.ɪ.glɒt/ (adj & noun)

Definition

a multilingual person speaking several languages, bilingual, trilingual, multilingual

Example

Polyglot doesn’t have a formal definition with a set criteria for how many languages you need to know to qualify as one. However, general agreement on how to become a polyglot among linguists and language learners is that you should be able to speak several languages with fluency. Being a polyglot means you should be confident writing and speaking in these languages and they should have a degree of separation – speaking many dialects wouldn’t qualify you as a polyglot in most people’s eyes. Even then, though, the definition is a personal one.
