Chair: Dr. Andrew Hippisley

The Linguistics Program at the University of Kentucky is an interdepartmental program bringing together faculty from a range of departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. The only program of its kind in the Commonwealth, it is dedicated to the scientific investigation of human language. In our courses and our research, we examine the formal properties of linguistic systems and the processes by which such systems change over time; we investigate the social dimensions of language variation and the psychological dimensions of language learning and use; and we work to document underdescribed and endangered languages.
