The Carleton Linguistics Department
Linguistics is the study of the remarkable human capacity to learn and use natural languages. Prominent questions include the nature of the systems of mental representation (both abstractly and neurologically characterized), how these representations arise, how they change, how they are written, and how languages are put to use in social and literary contexts.
