What is Linguistics

The scientific study of language is called linguistics. By “scientific” we mean that it uses the same methods for data collection and analysis as any other discipline of research, such as physics, biology, and so on. These scientific techniques include experimentation, observation, and experimentation.

The study of language’s phonetics (sounds), morphology (word construction), and syntax (grammar) is carried out independently. Sociolinguistics, dialectology, psycholinguistics, applied linguistics, and computational linguistics are some of the subfields of linguistics.
