Super language Learners. linguist 言語学者；
A new book has been published called "The Search for the World's MostExtraordinary Language Learners" (2011) by Michael Erard, an author,journalist, and linguist. The book asks the question, what are the upper limits of the human ability to learn, remember, and use languages?
To answer this he looks at some polyglots (someone who uses many languages) and hyperpolyglots (someone who can speak six or more languages fluently.) In one example he looks at Giuseppe Mezzofanti, a 19th-century priestwho was said to be fluent in as many as 50 languages. The author describes these types of learners as language super learners
and shows how much can be achieved with hard work and dedication.
