    There are many schools of thought in linguistics, so there is no single theory. To become a linguist, I would suggest that you first looked into whether you are interested in pure or applied linguistics and to take it from there.

    I think there is no school of thought in linguistics in my country, Myanmar. Can you give me an example for school. What are pure linguistics and applied linguistics?
    Have a good time!
