    present continuous or simple present

    Greetings.
    Two questions:
    1- which answer to the question ' what are you studying' is correct ?
    I major in linguistics, or I'm majoring in linguistics.

    2-What is the sound of 's' in 'Pronunciation in use'? Is it /s/ or /z/? A verb or a noun?
    Thanks.

    I'm majoring in linguistics.

    Some people would use a capital L for 'linguistics, as it is the name of the subject.

    2- What is the sound of 's' in 'Pronunciation in use'?

    /s/. It's a noun.
