    I am going to be a linguist...

    I am not a linguist yet, but I am going to be. What do you call such a person?

    'I am studying linguistics'- there's no term that I know of because there's no set path to become one- it's not like being a 'trainee' etc.

    That can have a negative connation- often a 'would-be' is someone who wants to be but lacks the talent, etc.
