Linguistic Intelligence is defined as having the following criteria:
a deep understanding of words and a sensitivity to the literal and figurative meanings of words,
highly developed oral and written communication skills,

knowledge of grammar rules and when it is appropriate to disregard those rules,
sensitivity to the musical qualities and rhythms of words,

knowledge of the many different uses for language, such as persuasion, information, or pleasure.
Poets, writers, and public speakers are examples of linguistically intelligent people.
Maya Angelou, William Shakespeare, and Abraham Lincoln are famous examples of linguistically intelligent people.

Linguistic Learner : "The Word Player"
Linguistic intelligence is the ability to use language to excite, please, convince, stimulate or convey information.

Linguistic Intelligence involves not only ease in producing language, but also sensitivity to the nuances, order and rhythm of words.

Poets exemplify this intelligence in its mature form.

Students who enjoy playing with rhymes, who pun, who always have a funny story to tell, who quickly acquire other languages -including sign language - and who write copious notes to their friends in class all exhibit linguistic intelligence.
