Language is a complex hierarchical system, and the complexity of language systems requires a diversity of research methods. Different sub-disciplines and schools of linguistics have different research methods. Despite their different orientations, these methodological approaches are complementary rather than diametrically opposed to each other.Different research methods can reveal the essential features of language from different perspectives and help us to describe and explain language more accurately and scientifically. In this paper, we will take the historical development process of modern linguistics as an entry point to make a comprehensive overview of the research methods in linguistics.
