Hi there,

I've been wondering how many sorts of linguistics there are?

Maybe one can distinguish between:

- linguistics of the letter or sound, mostly (historical) phonology,

- linguistics of the word, mostly lexicography and parts of speech,

- linguistics of the sentence, that is: grammar and grammatical approaches,

- linguistics of the text, like speech acts, rhetorics and literary analysis.

I let you make up your mind.

Best Wishes
