What is the difference between polyglots and linguist? I am planning to construct a house. Is this sentence grammatically correct?
A polyglot definitely speaks many languages (poly = many). A linguist may speak many languages but can also be a person who studies language (generally) or human speech. "I am planning to..." is perfectly acceptable. It implies that the act is currently happening, that you are actively thinking or drawing or have engaged an architect. "I plan to..." implies that you are thinking about building a house sometime in the future but you've not actually done anything about it yet.
