The Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta is a major centre, both nationally and internationally, for graduate education and research in the empirical study of human language.
Our faculty and graduate students are actively involved in a wide range of data-driven linguistic research with a strong focus on the empirical study of language through observation, fieldwork, and experimentation. We are also home to several major research grants in the areas of language acquisition, psycholinguistics, phonetics, phonology, field linguistics, corpus linguistics, and language revitalization.
