What's a polyglot?
It's someone who claims to speak multiple languages.
In history, there have been people who speak many languages.
How many languages?
How about ten or twenty or fifty or more.
Yes, there are such people. Not a lot of them and not everyone who claims to be one is one.
Michael Erard wrote a book about these folks called "Babel No More: The Search for the World's Most Extraordinary Language Learners".
Are they geniuses? Well, they work at it really, really hard.
