  Bakhtin 1986
'Stylistics and the philosophy of discourse indeed confront a dilemma: either to acknowledge tha novel (and consequently all artistic prose tending in that direction) an unartistic or quasi-artistic genre, or to radically reconsider that conception of poetic discourse in which traditional stylistics is grounded and which determines all its categories' (665).
What we have in mind here is not an abstract linguistic minimum of a common language, in the sense of a system of elementary forms (linguistic symbols) guaranteeing a minimum level of comprehension in practical communication.
'Linguistics, stylistics and the philosophy of language that were born and shaped by the current of centralizing tendencies in the life of language have ignored this dialogized heteroglossia, in which is embodied the centrifugal forces in the life of language' (668).

Linguistics is an exciting field, not only because of its own achievements, but also because of its contributions to other fields.
For example, linguistic anthropology is one of the four subdisciplines of anthropology, and it has provided models of rigour in cultural anthropology.
Linguistics also plays a key role in cognitive science, which involves collaboration among computer science, neurology, philosophy, and psychology, working together for greater understanding of human cognition (learning, memory, information storage and retrieval in the brain, and human thinking and mental activity in general).

Linguistics - scientific study of language, covering the structure (morphology and syntax; see grammar), sounds (phonology), and meaning (semantics), as well as the history of the relations of languages to each other and the cultural place of language in human behavior.
Through the comparison of language structures, such 19th-century European linguists as Jakob Grimm, Rasmus Rask, Karl Brugmann, and Antoine Meillet, as well as the American William Dwight Whitney, did much to establish the existence of the Indo-European family of languages.

 Patterson: Epistolary Corpus of Victorian Women Writers' Letters
Jan Aarts, in his paper "Corpus Linguistics: an Appraisal", remarked that "corpus linguistics also deals, by necessity, with all aspects of language variation, individual, social and regional", and challenged corpus linguists by suggesting that "one of the aims Corpus Linguistics should set itself is to describe the structure of texts, not merely sentences" (Aarts 1988).
She questions the usual designation in corpus linguistics of the letter as an "involved" or informal form because of its literary status, saying "there is a significant situational difference between letters written for publication and letters written privately" (Wright 1994: 27).
Linguists and literary scholars, it would appear, have much to offer each other in the study of a long-neglected genre.

 Linguistics : LinguisticS
Linguists often divide the study of language into a number of separate areas, to be studied more or less independently.
Most cognitive linguists, for example, would probably find the categories "semantics" and "pragmatics" to be arbitrary, and nearly all linguists would agree that the divisions overlap considerably.
Linguists can be broadly divided into those that study language at a particular point in time (usually the present) and those that study how language changes through time, sometimes over centuries.

 English 8703 Rebecca Moore Howard
At the turn of the twentieth century, allegiance to linguistic procedures was the primary defining element of stylistics as a discipline, and it remains so in the last quarter of the century.
The major question facing stylistics is whether movement away from that defining characteristic, no matter how slight, will result not only in a loss of self-definition but also in a shifting back of the entire field into the related disciplines of literary criticism, linguistics, or more probably Rhetoric, which is enjoying a strong rebirth.
New representations of authorship (variously associated with hyperhetoric, multiculturalism, cultural criticism, and poststructuralism) contributed to the sharp decline of stylistics in rhetorical and literary studies in the 1990's.
