Research in Language Sciences
UCL is the home to a number of research groups within language sciences. These cover a wide range of activities across the field including Philosophy of language, Pragmatics, Semantics, Syntax, Phonology, Phonetics, Speech Science and Hearing, together with work in the study of Speech and Language Disorder and Therapy, Audiology, Voice Pathology and Sign Language. The targets of our investigation include the nature of linguistic communication, the form and structure of language, the development of language, disorders of communication and the evolution of language. Our methodology ranges across conventional arts-based academic study, clinical studies, corpus-linguistic studies, computational models, acoustic analysis, speech perception and functional neuroimaging.
Language sciences research at UCL is spread over a number of research departments. The Centre for Human Communication fosters collaboration across groups. The following departments are described on this web site:
