Discourse analysis is sometimes defined as the analysis of language 'beyond the sentence'. This contrasts with types of analysis more typical of modern linguistics, which are chiefly concerned with the study of grammar: the study of smaller bits of language, such as sounds (phonetics and phonology), parts of words (morphology), meaning (semantics), and the order of words in sentences (syntax).
The LSA is a founding member of the National Humanities Alliance (NHA), a coalition of organizations that advocates for federal funding for humanities research, teaching, programming, and preservation and access. The field of linguistics is multi-dsciplinary and is informed by humanities, social science, and natural science research.
