Linguistics Club

Have you ever wondered how the languages of the world are similar? How they are different? Have you ever wondered how languages work? Have you wondered why Bostonians say “cah” while Pennsylvanians say “car” (but in parts of Pennsylvania, they say “warsh”, while a Bostonian would only say “wash”)? And have you wondered why we drive on a parkway but park on a driveway? If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider joining the Linguistics Club!

The Linguistics Club welcomes students of all backgrounds who have an interest in language. While many of our club members are linguistics majors, students of all majors are welcome to join, and we encourage diverse, interdisciplinary perspectives. If you’re considering a major or minor in linguistics, it’s a great way to meet other students and learn about what we do.

We plan fun activities that relate to linguistics and language, such as discussions, films, language games, and presentations. We share our experiences and learn about new opportunities, through networking with members and other like-minded students.
