    Lingvoculturology?

    Hello again,

    could you help me choose the name of a science (a branch of linguistics studying culure through the language) which would sound most "natural" to the ear of a native speaker:

    1) linguistic and culture studies
    2) linguistic and cultural studies
    3) lingvistic culturology
    4) lingvoculturology
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Hello, englishhobby.

    Could it be "ethnolinguistics" (or simply "cultural linguistics")?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnolinguistics

    I hope the link will shed some light on your query.

    2 is the best of the four. 3 & 4 are out of the question. tzfujimino's suggestions are both better than 2.
