Language studies look into multiple issues related to the use of language, such as how language can be learnt, how language is composed (letters, syllables, words, sentences), and how grammatical and structural aspects work together to create meaning and logic.

Subjects included by courses in language studies include topics such as evolutionary linguistics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neuro-linguistics, language acquisition and discourse analysis. Literature studies also feature an important research component in further understanding and developing human knowledge of linguistics. Supportive disciplines in the field include anthropology, human anatomy, informatics, philosophy, sociology, psychology as well as education.
