Literature, Linguistics, and Language Studies

New and forthcoming books from the MIT Press

“We have an incredibly strong legacy at the MIT Press publishing the work of Noam Chomsky, and his is not the only research paradigm in place. There is a lot of interesting work in the Universal Grammar/Minimalist Program tradition, as well as psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, computational linguistics, and linguistic anthropology. This is what makes MIT Press books special—we are not beholden to a singular perspective.”
Philip Laughlin, Senior Acquisitions Editor, Cognitive Science, Philosophy, Linguistics, and Bioethics
