Students conducting linguistics research
A center for research in theoretical and interdisciplinary linguistics


The Linguistics Department at Cornell is a center for research in the core areas of theoretical linguistics—syntax, phonology, semantics, pragmatics and phonetics—as well as in the interdisciplinary fields of computational linguistics and historical linguistics. A distinctive feature of the departmental character is research at the various interfaces, such as phonetics-phonology, phonology-syntax and syntax-semantics.
