General linguistics is linguistics that tries to study the rules of language in general. The resulting theoretical statements will concern language in general, not specific languages. Meanwhile, special linguistics is linguistics that tries to study the rules of language specifically. This special study can also be carried out on one language family / sub-family, ex: the Austronesian language family, the Indo-German sub-family. General linguistics is a field of science that not only investigates a particular langue but also pays attention to the characteristics of other languages. Linguistics does not only study one langue but also language. The object of linguistic study is language. The language that is meant in this sense is language in the true sense, namely the language used by humans as a means of communication, not the language in the sense of a class.
