Description:

The MA in Linguistic Theory & Typology (MALTT) offers training by a world
class faculty in theoretical frameworks for approaching descriptive and
sociolinguistic data with a special focus on how grammatical features are
distributed across the world's languages. Emphasis is given to language
modeling through computational and quantitative methods. There are two main
tracks, a morphosyntax track and a sociolinguistics track.

TA positions work as graders and instructors on linguistics or writing
courses. RA positions work on a variety of projects in a variety of
capacities, including editorial work on book projects, such as the forthcoming
Cambridge Handbook of Morphology, organizing conferences such as the upcoming
Patterns of Alignment in the Indo-Iranian Languages at U of Michigan, and NSF
grant proposal preparation.

The MALTT degree is part of the Linguistics Program, housed in the College of
Arts and Sciences within the state's flagship institution of higher education,
the University of Kentucky. The Linguistics Program runs a BA/BS major and
minor in Linguistics, and its faculty conducts morphosyntactic,
sociolinguistic and historical linguistic research of a national and
international reputation. The University of Kentucky is situated in Lexington,
the heart of Kentucky's bluegrass region, surrounded by rolling hills and
beautiful horse farms.

Students apply for a TA / RA position as part of the application process for
the degree. Decisions are made after the deadline of January 15 2013.
