About the institute

In the Institute of Estonian and General Linguistics, we research languages and teach linguistics. Our main mission is to research and teach Estonian, but other Finno-Ugric languages are important 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 computational linguistics and digital humanities subjects.

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