Descriptive Linguistics Linguists Organization Network
Descriptive linguistics is a work of analysis and description on how a language is spoken (or how it has been spoken in the past) by a group of people in a community. All academic research in linguistics is descriptive, like other sciences, its objective is to observe the linguistic world as it is, without preconceived theories about how it should be. The modern descriptive linguistics rest on a structural approach to language, as shown in the work of Bloomfield and others.
