What is Linguistics?
Linguistics can be defines as the scientific approach to study of language. It studies natural language of humans. It should be kept in min that Linguistics doesn’t complete any particular language rather it talks about every language because it answers the veritably introductory questions,’what’s language? How does it work?’
. Linguistics is deduced from two Latin words Lingua, which means’ language’; istics, which means Knowledge or wisdom. So, principally Linguistics is the Knowledge or wisdom of language. Linguistics is the wisdom which studies origin, nature, development of language, and rules formulated related to language.
Linguistics encompasses numeroussub-fields phonetic, phonology, morphology, syntax, converse analysis, and realistic. Besides that, there are othersub-fields like semiotics which study of signs in language; alternate language accession in which the procedure of learning alternate language.
Linguistics has main three aspects Material Aspects, structural Aspects; and environmental aspects. Material aspects addresses about substance. Substance is the raw material of any language. Structural aspects addresses about form. Form studies the internal structure of language. Thirdly, environmental aspects telks about the environment in which an utterance is produced and it’s perceived culturally.
Language is made up of lower units that are themselves made up of further lower units which are again made up of lower units till to the point where the lowest units come inseparable further. Phoneme is the lowest unite in language. The combination of phonemes creates loanword. Coinages combine to form words. The combination of words is helpful in making judgment. Several rulings are used in making piece of jotting or speech which is called textbook or converse.
Hence, Linguistics is the wisdom of language by showing that language is made up of lowest unites and how studying these lowest unites are important to study language.
