Linguistics at Princeton

Princeton linguistics, which has been in receivership for many years, is following its traditional emphasis on Chomskyan generative grammar, enabling the program to continue on the path set by eminent linguists, Bob Friedin (emeritus), Len Babby (emeritus), and Edwin Williams. Three new assistant professors, whom we welcome, have been hired: Laura Kalin (syntax), Florian Lionnet (phonology, field work), and Byron Ahn (syntax). Other linguists on campus include Christiane Fellbaum (CS, WordNet),  Christine Sagnier (French, Sociolinguistics), Josh Katz (Classics, Etymology), and Casey Lew-WIlliams (PSY, Language Learning and Development).
