The Linguists Club at Princeton
Founded in 2007, the Linguistics Club is a student group interested in the study of language. The current membership is around seventy undergraduates, ranging from freshmen to seniors. The club aims to 1) foster a sense of community among those interested in linguistics and 2) increase the visibility of linguistics at Princeton.
The club holds meetings twice monthly to work on problem sets, discuss relevant new articles, and meet with Linguistics faculty. In addition to the regular meetings, the club hosts outside speakers, in an effort to bring current linguistic research to the students.
The group will meet in the Butler Wu special dining room, Sundays at 11:30am. Fall meeting dates and topics are:
- What is linguistics? - 9/22 David Abugaber '14
