The Best Linguist of Our Age

John Marston (1576-1634), The Malcontent, I.iii.28-31:
FERRARDO. I study languages. Who dost think to be the best linguist of our age?
MALEVOLE. Phew! the devil: let him possess thee; he'll teach thee to speak all languages most readily and strangely; and great reason, marry, he's travelled greatly i' the world, and is everywhere.
