Linguistics Studies Minor

Language is everywhere, in all areas of our lives.

Language is what makes us human. whatwithlinguisticsminor.jpg

Linguistics is the scientific study of language; it helps us observe and analyze how language works as a unique scientific area of study.

Linguists investigate the sounds (phonetics & phonology), the structures (morphology & syntax), and meaning (semantics & pragmatics) of human language. With this we can explore how language is learned and processed (psycholinguistics & neurolinguistics; first & second language acquisition), evolved through time (historical linguistics), and used in its social context (sociolinguistics & linɡuistic anthropoloɡy), and even in computation and linguistic analysis (computational linguistics).

Linguistics is a truly interdisciplinary field!
