There are many ways to approach determining what Language is. One approach is to provide individual definitions. However, definitions cannot provide real-world guidance as to where to find books on language or how to understand which fields of study exist and how they are organized. Another method is to provide a comprehensive taxonomy of subjects within the domain of language, such as provided by the Library of Congress Subject Headings.
