The linguistics area of OHO provides new essays on critical topics and emerging issues in the structure, use, and history of language. Structure is divided into phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse. Language use encompasses sociolinguistics; psycholinguistics/neurolinguistics; and language acquisition by children and adults. The primary focus of historical linguistics is language change.
