Literature vs Linguistics - What's the difference?
As a noun literature
is the body of all written works.
As an adjective linguistics is
* literatuer (obsolete)
The body of all written works.
The collected creative writing of a nation, people, group or culture.
All the papers, treatises etc. published in academic journals on a particular subject.
Written fiction of a high standard.
- The obvious question to ask at this point is: ‘Why posit the existence of a set of Thematic Relations (THEME, AGENT, INSTRUMENT, etc.) distinct from constituent structure relations?? The answer given in the relevant literature is that a variety of linguistic phenomena can be accounted for in a more principled way in terms of Thematic Functions than in terms of constituent structure relations.
- However, even “literary” science fiction rarely qualifies as literature , because it treats characters as sets of traits rather than as fully realized human beings with unique life stories. —Adam Cadre, 2008
