About

Linguistics is the study of languages and the underlying principles of language generally. Only humans have the ability to use language, and besides providing us with a tool for communication, language also provides us with a tool for thinking. In this sense, the study of language may provide a window onto the study of mind, and this is what makes the study of language particularly compelling. How do different languages compare to each other? Is language variation unlimited? Are there principles which are shared by all languages? What are the major approaches in the study of language?
