I just came across this excellent overview of the field of linguistics by Steven Pinker. Highly recommended.

Watched the video, enjoyed it! (Not everything Pinker does annoys me, haha) Very interesting that how the questions linguists and philosophers of language ask intersect with computer science and psychology, and how Chomsky was critical in all of those fields for his work on the same subject matter.
