In a world of global activities Linguistics plays a central role in all areas of society. It is the basis for many professions that have to do with communication such as Language Teaching, Translation, Language Analysis for the purpose of Orthography Creation, Language Structure Analysis and Dictionary Production, as well as Literacy Activities and the production of school materials, etc. It plays a role in the media and helps in the social and economic development across languages and culture through literature production. Moreover, adequate cross cultural communication spoken and written aid in human relations at all levels as well as in peace development and reconciliation.
Linguistics also makes it possible to make modern as well as ancient literature understood. It is thus central in Bible Translation and in the interpretation of scriptures in church. It aids in making the meaning of the biblical texts be interpreted adequately and faithfully and in the transfer of that meaning in the receptor languages in the process of Bible translation.
