The Maryland Language Science Center, and the LSC Director Colin Phillips, were spotlighted in Johns Hopkins' Imagine magazine (May/June 2018 Issue) in a piece titled, "Discover Linguistics."


In April 2018, over 40 students and faculty from UMD and other universities helped staff the Language Science for Everyone booth at the USA Science and Engineering Festival at the DC convention center. An estimated 2,000 people visited the booth over the course of the three-day event. 

Language Science Center faculty -  Philip Resnik (Linguistics, UMIACS), Marine Carpuat (Computer Science, UMIACS), and Hal Daume (Computer Science, UMIACS) - join Douglas Oard (iSchool) on a four-year $14.4M Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) grant.

Join us for our 9th annual Language Science Day! More details available on the event page.
