UT's Department of Linguistics is committed to teaching and research in linguistics, the scientific and humanistic study of human language. The department’s research examines form and meaning in a wide variety of the world's languages, including signed and spoken languages. We study language as part of the biological, cognitive, and cultural endowment of our species. It uses computational techniques to probe the structure of human languages and designs experiments to understand how children learn language.
