Welcome to Linguistics!

UT's Department of Linguistics is committed to teaching and research in linguistics, the scientific and humanistic study of human language. Our 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. We use computational techniques to probe the structure of human languages. We design experiments to understand how children learn language. And we describe and document highly-endangered languages, especially indigenous languages of the Americas. For more information about us, follow this link.
