Linguistics, Semiotics, and the Study of Language


About

Collaborations in this cluster touch on various dimensions of language’s structures, meanings, sounds, visuals, and gestures; on theorizing and interpreting semiotic signs and symbols; and on the interdisciplinary study of language, language acquisition and pedagogy. Bridging the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, activities include projects and workshops as well as larger symposia. Groups work within and across linguistics (including computational linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, semantics, historical-comparative linguistics, morphology, visual-spatial linguistics, syntax, phonetics), as well as in discourse studies, language acquisition and preservation, bilingualism and multilingualism, representation and symbolic communication, semiotics in mass media/mass communication, language(s) across the curriculum, and more.
