The previous meeting of our two subject of Theoretical Linguistics migh be the most memorable classes ever along our 5th week of the vacation. Our beloved lecturer explained us about some linguistic levels: sounds/phone, phoneme, syllable, morpheme, word, phrase, clause, and sentece. Till then we came to the subfield of linguistics and semiotics called: pragmatics.
So, besides concern on syntax and semantics factor when we communicate, we also need to notice and pay our attention to the pragmatics. What is pragmatics? It's the study of the ways in which context contributes to meaning. Simply, we can call it as the social context.
Learning pragmatics, we are also going to learn about being a wise one. Why? Sure, because to understand certain context of a communication, we must use our feel, we must be sensitive before uttering what we'd like to share to other people.
