About

The Linguistics programme of Trinity College Dublin has been running for nearly 30 years. The students have in some cases come from language professions, or direct from undergraduate degrees which include language-centred elements. 

Overview

Course Description

Linguistics is the systematic study of human language. It has its roots in antiquity, though the twentieth century saw an explosion of research and the development of new theories and approaches. Linguistics has become an exciting and vigorous area of study, with strong connections to many fields including psychology, sociology, anthropology, cognitive science, computer science, and philosophy.

Language is complex, and linguistics attempts to describe and explain the full range of that complexity, especially speech sounds, the grammar of words and sentences, and how meaning relates to words, grammar and context. In general, the Linguistics programme of Trinity College Dublin is likely to appeal to students with a talent for careful, systematic argument, and who wish to understand the mysteries of language.
