Phonology the study of the system and patter of speech sounds of a language.
Syntax is the study of the way in which sentences are constructed and how sentences are related to each other.
Lexicon is one's mental list of the words in a language, including information about the meaning, grammatical function, pronunciation, etc.
Morphology the study of how words are structured and how they are put together from smaller parts.
Semantics includes synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, and multiple-meaning words.
Pragmatics is the study of how the meaning conveyed by a word or sentence depends on the context in which it is used ( such as time, place, social relationship between speaker and hearer, and speaker's assumption about the hearer's beliefs).
