Is math better than language arts?

No. This kind of one-upmanship between disciplines is a handicap to both, and unworthy of either.

Mathematics is a tool and a language for elucidating and describing phenomena. It can be beautiful and thrilling in its own right.

Mathematics can help you be a better linguist, by, for example, providing you with analyses and models for syntax analysis, grammar, language origins, and so on.

Being a linguist can make you a better mathematician, because mathematics is a language. A limited, but highly precise and complete language with universal application.
