About the course

Linguists study language in its most general and fundamental sense. In our daily lives, we are surrounded by language, and linguists seek to understand how humans use sound, writing, sign and gesture to encode and convey meaning. They develop descriptions of and theories explaining the structure, use, and evolution of language, and they investigate language in its interpersonal and cultural contexts. Linguists conduct research on the cognitive, social and neurobiological processes involved in producing and understanding language; on the development of these processes in childhood; on clinical disruptions to these processes; on the historical and cultural processes involved in the evolution and use of language; on the role language and dialect play in society and cultural identity; and on the structural characteristics that distinguish the world’s languages. Increasingly, linguists also contribute to the development of language technologies such as speech recognition, machine translation, and automatic text parsing.
