Linguistics

Linguists treat language as a natural object, like other cognitive faculties, using it as a natural point of entry into scientific discovery and the tools of scientific reasoning -- such as pattern recognition, experimental design, and hypothesis construction and testing. Linguistics serves as a "bridge" discipline between the sciences and the humanities, since language is at the center of humanistic inquiry, from philosophy and history to literary theory and language and cultural studies.
