Department of Linguistics
Language is central to all aspects of human life: communicating with one another, thinking and reasoning, creating social relations, and passing on ideas and discoveries to future generations. Linguistics is the study of this unique human ability. At Queen Mary we study the nature of language (its structure, and its connection to thought) as well as how it is used (across individuals, situations, and time).
Our department was top-ranked in the UK in the last research assessment (REF 2014). We offer a unique combination of expertise in formal linguistics, experimental linguistics and sociolinguistics.
The 45th Generative Linguistics in the Old World (GLOW) conference will be held at Queen Mary University of London 26th-29th April 2021.
