Linguistic Structures

Linguistic structures refer to grammar in a broad sense, i.e. phonology, lexicology and morphosyntax. The research area benefits from the Department’s collective language expertise and is home to research projects that deal with European, Asian and African languages, including endangered and less explored languages.

This research area gathers PhD students, teaching staff and researchers with a focus on linguistics and a research interest in linguistic structures.
