A PHD candidate evaluates word structure on a whiteboard


College of Letters and Science

Are you interested in the study of language structure? Linguists investigate how people obtain their knowledge about language, how this knowledge interacts with other cognitive processes, how it varies across speakers and geographic regions, and how to model this knowledge computationally. They study how to represent the structure of the various aspects of language (such as sounds or meaning), how to account for different linguistic patterns theoretically, and how the different components of language interact with each other.

The linguistics minor provides students with basic knowledge of language structure and linguistic analysis.
