The Scope of Linguistics
Linguistics deals with language at three levels. The building block of language is the level at which we study language scientifically in general and this level is called Linguistics. A linguist is mainly concerned with the structure of language and Linguistics is the scientific study of this structure. There are three things that make the structure of language. Neolinguistics identifies these levels as:
Microlinguistics deals with the internal structure of language including Phonetics, Syntax, Morphology and Semantics.
Macrolinguistics studies language in relation to other fields such as Psychology, Society and Literature that become Psycholinguistics, Sociolinguistics and Stylistics respectively and Metalinguistics deals with Language for change – both personal and social. It gives us fields such as NLP, Leadership and Communication.
The practical side of Linguistics for teaching is called TELF (Teaching of English as a foreign language) that helps you become an excellent modern English language teacher.
