0 Anonymous Asked: May 15, 2020In: English Literature Why is the study of Linguistics considered as a scientific study? 0 Is it a scientific study due to the application of scientific methods to question the nature and function of language? languagelinguisticsscientific method Share Facebook 1 Answer Voted Oldest Recent Richie Added an answer on May 17, 2020 at 7:35 pm I was thinking about this a few months ago. However, I kind of understood that it is considered a scientific study because it uses scientific methods to understand the underlying meaning and interpretation of the language we use every day. Also, linguists can use scientific methods to understand the relationship between spoken and written text or the relationship between online conversation and in-person conversation. These are things that they observe, can make a hypothesis about the relationship, test, or research by finding the variables, and then discuss their results. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
