Devitt and Sterelny contend that the prevailing Chomskian views on the relationship between linguistics and psychology rest on a conflation. “The transformational linguists conflate two distinct theoretical tasks: one concerned with linguistic symbols and the other concerned with linguistic competence” (Devitt and Sterelny , ). Vagueness is standardly defined as the possession of borderline cases. For example, ‘tall’ is vague because a man who is meters in height is neither clearly tall nor clearly non-tall. No amount of conceptual analysis or empirical investigation can settle whether a meter man is tall. Borderline cases are inquiry resistant.

Researchers try to find out the relationship between linguistics and language : Meng Jing. The chapter shows the way the analysis of plurals interacts with some of the most fundamental questions concerning the relationship between logic and language.

The basic intuition about an ambiguity between a collective and distributive reading of plural NPs yields an explosion in the number of readings for sentences containing several plural NPs. Fabb, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, 1 Literary Linguistics.

Linguistics looks for generalizations and so treats any text, any instance of language, just as an example of general processes at work and hence of interest only to the extent that it demonstrates those general processes.

In contrast, literary criticism, at least traditionally, is. In linguistics, syntax (/ ˈ s ɪ n t æ k s /) is the set of rules, principles, and processes that govern the structure of sentences (sentence structure) in a given language, usually including word term syntax is also used to refer to the study of such principles and processes.

The goal of many syntacticians is to discover the syntactic rules common to all languages.

Sebeok’s Psycholinguistics: A Survey of Theory and Research Problems (), which reported the proceedings of a seminar sponsored in the United States by the Social Science Research Council.

Logic (from the Ancient Greek: λογική, romanized: logikḗ) is the systematic study of the form of valid inference, and the most general laws of truth. A valid inference is one where there is a specific relation of logical support between the assumptions of the inference and its ordinary discourse, inferences may be signified by words such as therefore, thus, hence, ergo.

Formal linguistics later developed in Ancient Greece as well.
