Thus, an essentialist working in a linguistics department will tend to ask others, or demand (at worst), that his or her definition of linguistics be respected (it should be stressed that the essentialist believes that his or her definition of linguistics is correct), and that only research and teaching that adhere to or reflect the definition in question be allowed.
