About the institute

In the Institute of Estonian and General Linguistics, we conduct research and teaching in language and linguistics. Our main mission is to research and teach Estonian, but other Finno-Ugric languages are important to our core activities as well, making us one of the foremost Finno-Ugric research centres in the world. We also teach general linguistics, developing the skillset of our graduates by including subjects in computational linguistics and digital humanities.

The Institute is made up of four departments, two laboratories and three centres. It is managed by Head of the Institute, Professor Liina Lindström and the Institute Council.
