Program Description: Yale's graduate program in Linguistics is now open for applications for the PhD, to begin in August, 2019. Our faculty specialize in a range of linguistic fields, including (but not limited to) computational linguistics, language documentation, historical linguistics, morphology, neurolinguistics, phonetics, phonology, psycholinguistics, semantics, and syntax. We focus on areas of linguistics that combine empirical methods with linguistic theory and many of our students work on projects which cross-cut these subfields. For recent examples of faculty and student research activities, see We have a vibrant research community from the US and around the world. Applications close December 15, 2018. For more information about application requirements and procedures, please visit, or contact Chris McDaniel ([email protected]) for further information.
