Linguistics


UCL Linguistics is internationally known for its outstanding work in theoretical linguistics and pragmatics and for its growing strength in experimental work. Our staff carry out research aimed at discovering the nature and origin of language, its acquisition by children and its use in communication. We encourage and facilitate cross-disciplinary interaction with psychologists, cognitive scientists and philosophers working on language and communication. Undertaking a research degree in this department means you will be supervised by scholars who are leaders in their field with the expert up-to-date knowledge needed to guide you in shaping your own original research contribution.
