Message from The Head

It is my great pleasure to write a few words on behalf of the Central Department of Linguistics.  The teaching in the department is coupled with the linguistic research of various sorts to complement teaching. We offer various courses on linguistics, such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, computational linguistics etc. In addition to teaching linguistics, we encourage our students to be engaged in various research related to the langauges of Nepal. The faculties and students have carried out the field work in different languages spoken in Nepal.             Read More…

Established in May 1996, it aims to promote studies in theoretical and applied linguistics leading to degrees in M.A. and Ph.D. This is the single department in Nepal that offers courses in MA. and PhD. in Linguistics.
