About the Linguistics Program

The department focuses on research in American Indian languages and formal theories of syntax, phonology and morphology. Other specializations, including historical-comparative linguistics, may be created by means of interdepartmental study. Students consult with their graduate advisors in establishing their areas of specialization. Applied linguistics, the structure of a particular language or language family are handled in other departments, or may be assembled as an individual program study.
