The intersection between linguistics and public policy is manifold. There are at least three corners of the intersection:
Linguists and lexicographers tend to take a long view, not so concerned with the latest fads and innovations in the development of language. But among their ranks are neologism hunters who keep track of words and phrases as they bubble up into mainstream usage (and sometimes disappear just as quickly). Even when such novelties lack staying power, they speak to the endless creativity present in any language community.
