Software linguistics is the science of software languages. In this short paper, we sketch the general discipline of software linguistics, but our focus is on one part of it: empirical analysis of software languages. Such analysis is concerned with understanding language usage on the grounds of a corpus. In this short paper, we sketch a survey on empirical language analysis, and we argue that the research method of content analysis is needed for a thorough survey.
