General linguistics at UZH aims at understanding and explaining the nature and diversity of human language, relying on typological and field-work based methods. A special focus of research is the diffusion of linguistic features within geographical regions, which results from language contact and multilingualism. Since its foundation in 1976, the department is also concerned with documenting endangered languages worldwide.
