Professor & Chair, Department of Linguistics

From The Chair

Reimagine a Better Future.

Our department is internationally recognized as a major, global center for work in theoretical, experimental, and field linguistics. As we have helped you develop as linguists, you have become attuned to language as a complex product of the human mind, its development, how it changes over time, and how it is used in human society.

Linguistics is a field that continually evolves as it advances our understanding of human language. Your keen abilities in analysis, adaptive thinking, and your deep understanding of human universals and diversity will allow you to play an important role in reimagining and rebuilding a better future.
