Research and Seminars
Robert Munro October 27th, 2009
The heart and soul of our department is collaborative research. We undertake many research projects involving department members, in many different areas of linguistics:
- Collaborations among current faculty
- Collaborations among current PhD students
- Collaborations between current faculty and current PhD students
- Collaborations among all current faculty and PhD students
- Present and past faculty-student collaboration in and around the department
For information about the department research protocol and IRB approval, consent forms, etc. see the: Experimental protocol page.
The computational linguistics program at Stanford is one of the oldest in the country.
Current projects include pragmatics and lexical development, questions and cognitive development, and the uptake of words and constructions.
- See Eve Clark’s website for recent publications.
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.
- Syntax & Semantics at Stanford
- Crosslinguistic Investigations in Syntax-Phonology
- Construction of Meaning Workshop
- CSLI Pragmatics Lab
- Spoken Syntax Lab
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.
