Note from the Chair

Welcome to the Yale Linguistics Department, an intellectually exciting community where coursework and cutting edge research focus on the problem of understanding the human capacity for language. Students, post-docs and faculty work individually and collaboratively, using traditional methods of inquiry and new interdisciplinary tools, to characterize and explain the range and limits of human linguistic diversity. I invite you to explore our website to get a sense of the Yale Linguistics community.

Bob Frank, Professor and Chair
