If English is not your native language, you will be required to submit your TOEFL scores to graduate programs that offer linguistics PhDs. The good thing is that there is oodles of information in the universe about how to take and improve TOEFL tests. Another positive aspect of having to submit a TOEFL score is that graduate programs will often tell you of a minimum score required to apply. That means you can save money before applying.

For example, the University of Illinois’ Linguistics Department requires that non-native English speakers to have “TOEFL score of at least 88 (100 preferred) on the internet-based test (iBT); the speaking subsection of the iBT must also be passed with a minimum score of 24 (see http://www.grad.illinois.edu/Admissions/instructions/04c.cfm for instructions).”
