Curiosity is …

Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only that the cat died nobly. – Arnold Edinborough

I believe that curiosity is important in linguistics because it often leads to new discoveries. Moreover, students who are interested in linguistics are much more likely to surprise their professors with their knowledge or understanding of a particular phenomenon. Classroom discussions are much more engaging and easier to remember when such a curios person is participating and certain interesting facts are discussed.
