The Linguistics Program supports all types of scientific research that focuses on human language as an
object of investigation. The program supports research on the syntactic, semantic, morphological, phonetic, and phonological
properties of individual languages and of language in general. It also encourages investigation of linguistic questions
that are interdisciplinary in nature: the psychological processes involved in the production, perception, and comprehension
of language; the development of linguistic capacities in children; social and cultural factors in language use,
variation, and change; the acoustics and physiology of speech; computational approaches to the study of language; and
the biological bases of language in the brain.
The Linguistics Program accepts proposals for a variety of project types: research proposals from scholars with
PhDs or equivalent degrees, proposals for Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants, and CAREER proposals. We will
also consider proposals for workshops, conferences, and training programs.
