Linguistics at Miami University
Read what current and former students have to say about Linguistics at Miami University.
Tricia McDonough (2012)
Instead of looking at English as a tool to transfer information and evoke feelings ... I'm realizing the role that language has in transferring ideas. It simultaneously functions systematically, with structured grammar and phonology, and encourages creativity, with infinite possibilities to put our understanding of the universe into words.

Rachael Baiduc (2008)
While at Miami, I majored in speech pathology and audiology with a minor in linguistics. Although I was interested in understanding language, I became enraptured by the ear and its exquisite ability to process complex stimuli.

Amanda Tingley (2014)
Before coming to Miami, I'd never heard of linguistics or what it could possibly be used for. After taking Intro to Linguistics, I found that my real interests were in neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics.
