The Domain of Linguistics
An article entitled "The Field of Linguistics" was first published by the Linguistic Society of America in 1982. Facilitated by a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, it was written to explain the discipline to the general public. A new edition was edited by Geoffrey Nunberg and Thomas Wasow in 1997. The plan is to update this page periodically and to expand the coverage of areas. If you are interested in updating an article, or writing a new one, please contact the LSA by clicking here.
