Welcome to the official League of Linguists website! We are the undergraduate linguistics student organization at UIUC. Our mission is to stimulate social interaction and academic enrichment throughout the Department of Linguistics. We hold fundraisers, weekly meetings, and various academic and social events in order to promote the study of language as a science, a hobby, and an academic institution.

Some examples of things we’ve done at meetings this year:

  • Played IPA Jeopardy
  • Worked through puzzles involving Bantu morphology
  • Unsuccessfully tried to resolve long-standing problems in generative syntax
  • Game night!
  • Ate lots of cookies and drank lots of tea
  • Made good friends

If you want to have fun with people who share your interests, if you want to contribute to the Department in a positive way, or if you just want to try something new, stop by one of our events (see the calendar below). All are welcome!
