So, I did a search on https://books.google.com/ngrams for the word “linguistics”. Just to see what turns up. To my surprise, there has been a prominent peak and decline in the use of the term!
Does anyone have any idea why the use may have peaked and why it may have declined? Please email me at email@example.com.
