Participate in a linguistics experiment, and see how you do – what can you guess about people based on the way they speak? Where do the assumptions you make come from?

Students of linguistics at ANU study a wide range of courses in different branches of linguistics, and form part of a dynamic research community.

Courses in linguistics can be combined with courses from ANU’s unparalleled range of languages, with translation, or with courses from further afield such as philosophy and computer science.

Participating in this Sunday linguistics session, will provide you with a unique insight into some of the work linguists do, how we study language, and what the implications of our linguistic perceptions are.
