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.
