Abstract

One of the most recent contributions from Schwartz, focused on the Ergology inputs to Epistemology, establishes a new way to address the issue of fields, disciplines and concepts. Based on the axis covering from the ergological discipline to the epistemic discipline, there are various levels of epistemicity. We postulate that Linguistics occupies a hybrid positioning related to these levels. This point of view will be developed in four parts: Articulatory and Acoustic Phonetics; Structuralism; Normative Grammar; and Discourse-Enunciation Approaches.

Keywords ergology, epistemology, linguistics, epistemic levels.
