Painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder - The Tower of Babel (Vienna) - Google Art Project.

Philosophers of language study the structure of linguistic utterances, semantics, syntactical order, and their implications for meaning, reference, and logic.

Specialists include David Braun, John Kearns, and, from a historical perspective, Lewis Powell.
