linguistics

**Linguistics** is the (scientific) study of natural human language. See a reasonably good page at Wikipedia.

Linguists may deploy formal methods to understand grammatical strings of words, and to allow compositional theories of meaning based on the meanings of the subparts of sentences.

- Montague grammar
- context free grammar
- categorial grammar
- pregroup grammar
- monad (in linguistics)
- categorical compositional distributional semantics
- dependent type theoretic methods in natural language semantics

- syntax, semantics, semantics of a programming language
- lambda calculus, type theory
- context-free grammar
- monad (in computer science)
- continuation-passing style
- linear logic, modal logic
- mathematical linguistics
