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.

Carleton College was proud to host the 3rd Annual Minnesota Undergraduate Linguistics Symposium on April 11, 2015.
