Sydney Centre for Language Research

Promoting language research excellence
We consolidate the language research community at Sydney, creating opportunities for new collaborations while pursuing increased research funding, improved quality of research outcomes, and enhanced research engagement and impact.

We've been carrying out research on language for many decades.

Currently, more than 70 University of Sydney researchers are publishing in the Linguistics FoR code (2004), and/or are trained in a field of linguistics and are active in research on language in some capacity, in linguistics, languages, philosophy of language, anthropology of language, media and communications, music, psychology, speech pathology, health communication, information and data science.
