It is true that knowing language or monolingual is being handicapped in language or verbal or written communication. It is common knowledge that these days many people are bilingual, but most importantly it more beneficial to be multilingual especially to be proficient intelligibly in any of the international languages like English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Chinese etc. This will help researchers to collaborate effectively on any topic or subject. As a student of linguistics in African languages, I support the idea that scientific papers will be written and analised efficiently and effectively and widely distributed for as public good to solve problems being faced by humanity.
