Linguists: Sapir-Whorf - Noam Chomsky - George Lakoff


Broadly conceived, linguistics is the study of human language and a linguist is someone who engages in this study. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linguistics, Apr 2004

Historical linguistics

Historical linguistics (also diachronic linguistics or comparative linguistics) is primarily the study of the ways in which languages change over time, by means of examining languages which are recognizably related through similarities such as vocabulary, word formation, and syntax, as well as the surviving records of ancient languages. Historical linguistics aims to classify the world's languages by their genetic affiliations and to trace the historic development of languages. Modern historical linguistics grew out of the earlier discipline of philology, the study of ancient texts and documents. In its early years, historical linguistics focused on the well-known Indo-European languages; but since then, significant comparative linguistic work has been done on the Austronesian languages and various families of Native American languages, among many others. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_linguistics [May 2005]
