I had a question about studies in linguistics. I think.
I want to do something on the linguistical side of literature. I want to analyze a writer's letters to different political figures, but I was wondering how I could link linguistics into this idea. This is for a very open ended self project.
I was thinking along the lines of looking at his word choice, but I feel that's very superficial, and I was hoping to get down into something more linguistical...
the only linguistics I've truly studied so far is phonetics. Which doesn't really serve me here because it's all written.
Am I even thinking in the right direction?
Thanks for any help/guidance you can provide :)
