This is a 'concise dictionary' and it is 'of linguistics'. What should such a book be like and what should it include? Linguistics is defined in general dictionaries as 'the science of language' or 'the scientific study of language'. In the more cautious wording of The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, it is 'the branch of knowledge that deals with language'.
But although it is the only academic discipline that deals with language alone, and there are aspects of language that it alone is concerned with, its practitioners cannot claim a monopoly of the whole of their subject matter.
LINGUIST List 14.1477
A range of other disciplines, from the study of literature to computer science, deal with language in one way or another, and the boundaries between them and linguistics are not fixed. It would indeed be a pity if they were. How far into these should the entries in this dictionary go? Let us start from the centre and work outwards.
Everyone will agree that grammar, in a wider or narrower sense, is part of linguistics: in its widest sense, it includes both the study of the structure of words and of syntactic constructions, and that of sound systems. In the second half of the twentieth century these fields have seen an explosive development of technical theory, and a great deal of this dictionary is taken up with it. Everyone will agree that linguistics is concerned with the lexical and grammatical categories of individual languages, with differences between one type of language and another, and with historical relations within families of languages.
These are potentially bottomless pits, and strict limitations are needed to avoid falling into them; but I hope I have included what users will judge to be important.
