Department for General Linguistics

The research field of Linguistics explores the structure and usage of languages of the world. Our research in the Department of General Linguistics cocerns itself with questions of speech sounds (phonetics and phonology), the structure of words and sentences (morphology and syntax), the meaning of linguistic utterances (semantics and pragmatics) and the cognitive processes of speech and comprehension (psycho- and neurolinguistics).
