Both SCHOLAR and LANGUAGE are broadly defined. Scholars are not just those who reside in the ivory tower or have a PhD, especially since academia has systemically kept marginalized folks out of its halls. Likewise, I use language instead of linguistics because the field of linguistics has been unwelcoming to marginalized linguists, so we find them in various fields, like Education, Anthropology, Media Studies, Speech, Language and Hearing Studies, etc.
