The Department of Linguistics at the University of Toronto invites applications for admission to our MA and PhD programs for Fall 2019. The department has strengths in theoretical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, fieldwork on understudied languages, and interfaces across these areas. The faculty has specializations in a wide range of methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative. The department’s open door policy allows students to explore their research interests across sub-disciplines, gaining training in multiple approaches, and shaping their own research projects. Interface across diverse areas of linguistics is highly encouraged.

This fall, the department celebrates fifty great years of research, teaching, and community. Building on this proud tradition of excellence, the department is in the midst of an exciting period of faculty expansion. This year, the department welcomed two new members to our graduate faculty, Barend Beekhuizen (computational linguistics, semantic processing and typology) and Keir Moulton (syntax, semantics, experimental linguistics). This enrichment builds on five new hires in the last three years– Susana Béjar (morphology, syntax), Derek Denis (sociolinguistics), Nathan Sanders (phonology, sign language), Jessamyn Schertz (phonetics, phonology, psycholinguistics), and Guillaume Thomas (semantics, pragmatics, interface with morphosyntax). The department is currently in the process of hiring an additional three faculty members who will join the department from Fall 2019 in the following three areas: syntax/semantics of indigenous languages, theoretical/laboratory phonology, and language acquisition/processing in syntax/semantics.

The current faculty and their primary research areas include the following:

  1. THEORETICAL LINGUISTICS, with an emphasis on formal methods in morphology, semantics, syntax, phonetics, phonology, and pragmatics. The continuing faculty currently doing research and teaching in these areas include: Susana Béjar (morphology, syntax), M. Cristina Cuervo (syntax), Michela Ippolito (semantics), Peter Jurgec (phonology), Arsalan Kahnemuyipour (syntax), Yoongjung Kang (phonetics, phonology), Alexei Kochetov (phonetics), Keir Moulton (syntax, semantics), Keren Rice (phonology, morphology), Nathan Sanders (phonetics, phonology), and Guillaume Thomas (semantics, pragmatics).
  2. PSYCHOLINGUISTICS, with a focus on language acquisition and processing of natural language. The continuing faculty currently working in these areas include: Barend Beekhuizen (computational linguistics, semantic processing and typology), Daphna Heller (sentence processing), Philip Monahan (speech perception, neurolinguistics), Ana Teresa Pérez-Leroux (language acquisition), Jessamyn Schertz (bilingualism, perceptual shift).
  3. SOCIOLINGUISTICS, with a focus on language variation and change. The continuing faculty doing research in this area include: Derek Denis (language variation, discourse-pragmatics), Atiqa Hachimi (sociolinguistics, language and gender), Naomi Nagy (language variation and change, heritage languages), and Sali A. Tagliamonte (language variation and change, Canadian dialects and Internet language).

The department also has a strong interest in fieldwork and the study of understudied languages in Canada and the world. Faculty with fieldwork research projects include: Suzi Lima (Kawaiwete, Brazil; Yudja, Brazil), Keren Rice (Dene, Canada), Nathan Sanders (sign language), and Guillaume Thomas (Mbyá Guaraní, South America)

All graduate students in our program receive funding packages of no less than $17,500 (for 2019-20, with a planned increase of guaranteed minimum to $18,500 by 2021-22), plus tuition and fees, for one year in the MA program and four years in the PhD program. Additional funding is often available through Research Assistantships on the many funded faculty research projects.

The deadline for applications is January 15, 2019, though later applications will be considered if space remains in the program.

The Canadian Linguistic Association will hold its 2019 conference as part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) from Saturday June 1 to Monday June 3, 2019. Members are invited to submit abstracts representing all areas of linguistics.

You must be a member of the CLA when you present at the conference. To become a member of the CLA or to check your membership status, visit https://www.cambridge.org/core/membership/claacl.

Abstracts may be submitted in two categories: oral presentation (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions) or poster presentation. We strongly encourage established scholars to submit their abstracts for posters.

There will be a special session in honour of the late Michael Rochemont, focusing on Information Structure. If you wish your abstract to be considered for the special session, please indicate this to the programme committee via email to keir.moulton@utoronto.ca in addition to submitting your abstract to EasyChair.


  1. Abstracts may be no longer than one (1) page, (21.6×27.9 cm, 8½×11 in.), single-spaced in 12-point font with 1-inch (2.54 cm) margins, excluding references.
  2. A complete list of references cited in the abstract must also be submitted on a second page.
  3. Examples, figures, and tables must be included on the first page.
  4. Abstracts must be in PDF format; if you use phonetic transcriptions or any other special symbols, ensure that necessary fonts are embedded.
  5. To help ensure anonymity, abstracts should not contain excessive references to the authors’ publications and should not contain acknowledgements to granting agencies.
  6. Abstracts should contain:
    • a title
    • a clear and explicit statement of the research question
    • a clear statement of the research context, including key references
    • an indication of the main arguments involved, including key examples, if applicable (for research in progress, pilot results must be included)
    • a statement of the conclusions reached and an assessment of their significance
  7. Authors should identify themselves only on the abstract submission form—abstracts must be anonymous.
  8. Members are limited to one individual and one joint abstract submission, or two joint submissions.
  9. Papers must be presented in the language used in the title of the abstract.
