The interdisciplinary MA program of the Department of Comparative Language Science aims to understand language as a central cognitive faculty of humans, especially in comparison to other species. Central questions are: What are the biological and social prerequisites required for the emergence of language? What causes languages to change constantly? What allows children to acquire any of the world’s languages? How do linguistic structures spread across space and time? How do people from different cultures use language and what impact can language have on cognition? How is language perceived, processed, and produced? What distinguishes human language from the communication systems of other species?
