Masters in Linguistics

Linguistics look into multiple issues of language, such as how the language can be learnt, how the language is composed (letters, syllables, words, sentences), including grammatical and structural aspects, meaning and logics. Linguistics has categories such as evolutionary linguistics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, language acquisition and discourse analysis. Literature studies take important role on research of the field. Supportive disciplines are anthropology, human anatomy, informatics, philosophy, sociology, psychology, computer science, acoustics and etc.
