Welcome to the Department of Linguistics' website

Linguistics deals with the study of linguistic phenomena and the study of the basic principles of language. The ability to use complex and rich language characterizes the human race and is unique to us as a species. It provides us with an essential tool not only for communication but also for thinking. Hence, the great interest in investigating the language and in understanding its characteristics and principles. Are there any common structural principles for all languages, or are they all utterly distinct ? How do I compare between different languages? What kind of theories exist today in the study of language?
