We send hearty congratulations to the four PhD graduates who received their doctorates at Yale’s Commencement ceremony on Monday: from L to R: Ryan Kasak, Sean Gleason, Luke Lindemann, and Alysia Harris. Their work on Mandan, Latin, Nepali, and African American English (respectively) has enriched our department and the field, and we wish them all the best.
Additions and changes to our faculty and student population.
Interested candidates for a tenure-track junior position should submit an application online by December 1, 2017.

We are delighted to have Sarah Babinski (Swarthmore ’16), Yiding Hao (UChicago ’15), Dan Schwennicke (Oxford ’16), and Andy Zhang (Yale ’15) join our department.
We are thrilled to announce that Jason Shaw and Jim Wood will be joining the faculty of the Yale Linguistics department as Assistant Professors starting in Fall 2016.
The Yale University Department of Linguistics is proud to welcome four graduate students who begin their doctoral studies this fall. They were inducted into the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at the matriculation ceremony on August 27, 2015, and each brings a unique set of background interests and scholarly experience that will enrich our department for years to come.
The Yale linguistics department is conducting searches for two faculty positions during this academic year. One is a tenured Professor-level appointment in either semantics/pragmatics or phonetics/experimental phonology, the other an Assistant/Associate Professor position potentially in one of these areas but open to candidates in other fields as well. Details can be found at the following announcements for the senior and junior positions.
