Gain practical training in the techniques and methods associated with this field. The course takes a cross-linguistic perspective, allowing you to expand your knowledge of the theory of comparative syntax and semantics and giving you access to a large pool of empirical knowledge on the languages of the world.

With the guidance of world-class tutors and the support of a vibrant research community you will be able to perform original research in formal and comparative syntax and semantics.

This course is suitable for you if you have a prior background in syntax and semantics.
