  • Dialectology: The study of language variation based on geographic distribution
  • Pragmatics: The study of how context contributes to meaning
  • Discourse analysis: The study of how language is used
  • Computational linguistics: The application of computational programs to model aspects of language
  • Language acquisition: The study of how people acquire or learn a language
  • Psycholinguistics: The study of how people process language
  • Experimental linguistics: The study of theories of linguistics representation (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics) based on evidence
  • Neurolinguistics: The study of how language affects the structure and function of the brain
  • Lexicography: The compilation and study of dictionaries with context, history, grammar, and pronunciation in mind
  • Forensic linguistics: The study of language and the law
  • Corpus linguistics: The study of language through a collection of naturally occurring texts.

For further learning and moving forward in linguistics, you can learn from one of the university such as Brigham Young University.
