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 is a unique ability for a person, which provides him 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. In the department we will discuss a number of issues such as whether there are common structural principles of all languages, or in various languages differ Unlimited? How do I compare languages? What theories exist today in the study of language?
