Linguistics faculty in English pursue university-supported research projects
In academic year 2021-22, three professors from the Department of English have had research leaves thanks to support from the university: Ljiljana Progovac (Professor), Natalia Rakhlin (Associate Professor), and Petr Staroverov (Assistant Professor). All three of these professors specialize in linguistics, and their research aims to advance scholarship on linguistics as well as to contribute to the ways we learn and perceive language itself.
