Department of Linguistics

The discipline of linguistics focuses on the nature of human language and how its many systems can be accounted for. Originating in 1967, the Department of Linguistics offers courses in core theoretical areas of linguistics, in addition to areas which intersect with related disciplines (e.g. sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics).

The core areas of research and teaching in the department are Theoretical Linguistics (generative grammar: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics), Language Variation (sociolinguistics, dialectology, language variation, language change), and Psycholinguistics (comprehension and production, language acquisition, both in relation to linguistic theory). Additional research areas may be found on our faculty page.
