Welcome to the Harvard Department of Linguistics

The Department of Linguistics is home to one of the oldest and most distinguished linguistics programs in the United States. The Department emphasizes the inseparability of theoretical and empirical work, and the interrelatedness of diachronic and synchronic approaches to the study of language. Much of the strength of Linguistics at Harvard derives from the unique range and depth of the University's offerings in related disciplines, especially ancient and modern languages, and the growing Mind/Brain/Behavior Initiative.
