Department of General Linguistics

The Department of General Linguistics teaches and coordinates the specialties of general linguistics and computer linguistics, the latter in collaboration with the Chair of Natural Language Processing in the Institute of Computer Science. In addition, we teach general theoretically based courses in linguistics.

The department conducts research on Estonian from a theoretical and a comparative perspective, focusing mainly on the patterns of language meaning. Within the last couple of years, two main research directions have emerged in the department: referential practices and academic writing. The latter research is conducted in collaboration with the research group at the College of Foreign Languages and Cultures. Research in the domain of computational linguistics is done in collaboration with language technology as well as digital humanities research groups.
