Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Arts
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Linguistics
Description The aim of the Graduate Program in Linguistics at McGill is to train researchers in theoretical linguistics and its applications, particularly the issue of language diversity and how this diversity may be related to a universal underlying linguistic competence. This common interest is developed through: (a) study of formal grammars (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics), including properties of lesser known languages; (b) acquisition of grammars (as first or second languages); (c) processing of language and speech (with particular reference to prosody); (d) representation of grammars in healthy and impaired brains (neurolinguistics); (d) variation in grammars (sociolinguistics and dialectology). In the experimental areas, emphasis is placed on combining research in one of the core areas of linguistic theory with evidence from another domain.
