Computational Linguistics

The computational linguistics program at Stanford is one of the oldest in the country.

Language Acquisition

Current projects include pragmatics and lexical development, questions and cognitive development, and the uptake of words and constructions.

Linguistic Fieldwork

The department prides itself in supporting linguistics research based on empirical data collection.

Phonetics and Phonology

Research areas include Metrics, Morphology, Phonetics, Phonological Variation, Speech Perception, and Sociophonetics.

Syntax and Semantics

Stanford researchers have pioneered the development of formally precise frameworks for grammatical analysis, and empirical methods employing modern statistical models.


Our sociolinguistics program is variation-based, combining a strong emphasis on the social side of variation with a department-wide interest in the linguistic constraints on variation.
