Abstract

This chapter discusses linguistics and literature. It is part of a collection which provides a comprehensive and accessible account of the field of linguistics. The book begins with a general overview that considers the origins of language, frames the discipline within its historical context, and looks at how linguists acquire new data. It then turns to the traditional subdisciplines of linguistics.
