Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey allz,

A question regarding languages sparked in my mind while my browser was on PF main page. I just realized that we almost cover every main field of academics here to some extend while languages/linguistics are not here at all.

Do you think its a good idea if we add a forum about these fields?

thx,

Yes! Especially in its connection to computer science. Formal languages is an interesting subject. So is the study of natural languages. I vote for a forum on linguistics for whatever that is worth.

I come to this forum as a refuge from language... But it would be fun to debate the various parts of grammar on here though.

Not true. Read the subtitle under Social Sciences.

Besides, forums are created only on the basis of a clearly demonstrated need and a sufficient level of participation (among others) under a more general subforum.

Thx Gokul43201,

I see. I went there and saw threads about language/linguistics shattered between the main forum and the subforum there.

I think its a good idea if we add a specific subforum there for languages/linguistics. It wil make it easier to spot, and much easier to keep track of the threads.
