Linguistics is a science field examining and describing the natural languages (Turkish, English, Chinese, etc.) as living, evolving, changing, even dying systems, and their functioning from various aspects. Arising of the natural languages, their origins, historical developments, structures, functioning, relationships and interactions with each other in the past and present, their changes over time, their differences and similarities, their way of usage in the written and verbal communication, problems related to their learning and teaching, and everything concerning language are among the research fields of linguistics.
