Language science is by nature multidisciplinary and our programs support students in actively crossing departmental and university boundaries. The language science initiative provides students with the flexibility to create individualized programs of study involving combinations of faculty mentors. The list of programs and specializations below is just a starting point, and our current students and faculty mentors are happy to answer questions about the programs and about particular areas of interest. 

At this week’s lab meeting, we’ll be hearing from Dustin Chacón, who will be talking about “Resumptives: the pronouns that we maybe now understand them”. He’ll talk about background on parsing long distance dependencies and on the murky status of resumptive pronouns, and then he’ll summarize some experiments that he has recently carried out, plus new experiments that are in the planning stages.

William Matchin will talk about "ERP indices of structure building mechanisms".

All welcome.

Language Science Day 2014

LSD marked the 1-year anniversary of the Maryland Language Science Center, showcasing many ideas and initiatives launched over the past year.

The Psycholinguistics Lab Meetings are where 20-30 students and faculty spend Friday lunchtimes in lively arguments about ongoing research. At the annual kickoff meeting each person gives a brief summary of his/her interests and work. Ground rules: 1-slide only (points added or deducted for egregious interpretation of "one"), irreverence encouraged. Having missed a few weeks due to other events, we'll start with a double-length meeting. Email the slide to colin@umd.edu by at least 3 minutes before the start of the meeting. All welcome.

The University of Maryland has unparalleled resources for research on language.

Each Fall, Language Science Day (LSD) brings together up to 200 students and faculty from across the University and affiliated centers, providing opportunities for participants to exchange ideas, showcase new or ongoing projects, find out about research and training opportunities, spark potential collaborations, and get to know their fellow language scientists.

Learning a language as a child seems effortless; as an adult, it can be burdensome. Why?
