Soft Science Fiction.

It occurs to me that the element of scientific speculation in «Embassytown» must be quite uncommon in that it is concerned with a "soft" science, namely Linguistics, instead of the usual hard ones like physics, biology or chemistry. Am I right? Are there other examples of soft-science fiction?
