Our Research

The focus of research and teaching in the Department of Linguistics at McGill University is on theoretical and experimental linguistics, with special emphasis on the understanding of language diversity and how this diversity may be related to a universal underlying linguistic competence.

For information on current and on-going research projects and grants in the department, please see individual faculty pages and our projects and grants page.
