Linguistics is the scientific study of human language. Linguists areinterested in questions such as the following:

§                      What are the structuralproperties of languages, at the level of sounds, words, sentences, and meaning?

§                      To what extent are thelanguages of the world similar or different?

§                      How is language acquired,by children and in adulthood?

§                      How is it processed in themind/brain?

§                      How do people produce andperceive speech?

§                      How do languages changeover time?

Linguistics is a highly interdisciplinary field which combines researchmethods from the humanities and the social, natural, and mathematical sciences.

Research in the Department covers a broad range of topics, withsubstantial coverage of syntax, semantics, morphology, phonetics, phonology,and pragmatics. We approach these topics from several different researchtraditions and backgrounds, with particular strengths in formal-theoreticallinguistics, experimental and field linguistics, acquisition, and computationalapproaches to the study of communicative behaviour. These research areasintersect and overlap considerably, and faculty and students are oftensimultaneously involved in more than one area. This is part of the attentionpaid to interfaces between traditional subfields of linguistics and methodologicaltraditions (e.g., laboratory phonology, gesture and speech and learning), oneof the great strengths of the Department.

The Department also has a strong commitment to the study of Languages ofthe Americas,with particular focus on First Nations Languages of Canada, in the areas ofdocumentation and theoretical research, something for which it is well known.Research is not restricted to Languages of the Americas, however; the departmentalso has a long history of work on African languages and there is ongoingresearch on languages within the Indo-European, Japonic, Sino-Tibetan, andUralic families as well as Korean.

关于博主

井中蛙

取名“井蛙”,寓意两层:一则相貌丑陋;二则学识浅陋。相貌丑陋,无可更改;唯学识浅陋,似可籍勤奋而进步一二。是故恳望有识之士有以教我,则感激涕零也。 我的电子邮箱:guoxy0913@163.com 我的QQ号码:281173822
