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.

Words and sentences have parts that combine in patterns, exhibiting the grammar of the language. Phonology is the study of patterns in sound or gesture. Syntax and Semantics involve studying patterns in sentence structure, from the vantages of form and meaning, respectively. The shared aim is a general theory of human grammars, one that allows us to understand speakers' ability to use language and the rapid development of language in every normal child. 
 

The language science initiative lets students create individualized programs of study.
