 What is Linguistics?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Linguistics can often supply facts which help people arrive at a recommendation or value judgement, but the recommendation or value judgement is not part of linguistic science itself.
Recently linguists such as Joseph Greenberg and Vitalij Shevoroshkin have attracted attention both in linguistic circles and in the popular press with claims of larger genetic units, such as Nostratic (comprising Indo-European, Uralic, Altaic, Dravidian, and Afroasiatic) or Amerind (to include all the languages of the New World except Na-Dene and Eskimo-Aleut).
When linguists say that languages are related, they're not just remarking on their surface similarity; they're making a technical statement or claim about their history-- namely, that they can be regularly derived from a common parent language.

Zhang demystifies the puzzle of why Shen Yue violated his own metrical theory and presents the true essence of Shen’s theory of metrical patterns.
Thus Zhang concludes that understanding of tonal expressions in the Six Dynasties will demonstrate the relationship between linguistics and poetry, and furthermore, show that the invention of tonal metrical patterns was a response to the linguistic changes after the Pre-Qin period.
Based on the case study of Shen Yue's poems, this paper centers around the poetic metrical patterns of the Six Dynasties from the perspective of linguistic study.
