In this paper I will attempt to look at language and linguistics from a multilingual lens. That is, what can we learn from research on bi- and multilingualism (both within our field and from other disciplines) regarding what human language is? Taking the multilingual as the norm necessitates treating translanguaging, code-switching, and code stumbling as basic language use. How does this affect our representation of grammar(s)? How does it affect our notions of language?
