Linguistics is the science of language: it aims to describe language phenomena in an appropriate manner.

Linguistics is divided into several disciplines:

  • Phonetics/phonology investigates language sound systems
  • Morphology occupies itself with the inner construction of words.
  • Syntax concerns itself with the formal structure of word groups and sentences.
  • Semantics analyzes the meaning of linguistic expressions.
  • Pragmatics examines language as communications medium.

In Stuttgart, we teach linguistics as a cognitive science. This means that by analyzing language we expect to gain insights into the structures of the human mind. You can also take linguistics as a minor subject in combination with one of the following majors: English, German, History, History of Science and Technology, Art History, or Romance Studies. In the minor, you learn the basics of theoretical linguistics.
