History of the department

The Department of General Linguistics is a leading educational and research centre of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics in Ukraine.

The Department was established at the Faculty of Philology of Ivan Franko National University of Lviv as a separate educational and scientific unit in 1939. The Department continues developing university traditions of the Departments of Indo-European Linguistics (1910–1917), Comparative Linguistics and Indo-European Studies (1917-1927), and Comparative Indo-European Linguistics (1927–1939).

Nowadays, the Department trains specialists (Bachelors, Masters, PhDs) in the major “Applied Linguistics” in the context of communication studies and sociolinguistics. Teachers of the Department also work with students who specialize in Ukrainian Studies, Slavic Studies, and Oriental Studies, covering theoretical problems of linguistics, sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics and other areas of modern language science.

Teachers of the Department conduct a wide range of theoretical, methodological, applied research in the field of general linguistics (Floriy Batsevych), sociolinguistics (Halyna Matsiuk), text theory (Floriy Batsevych, Solomiia Buk, Liubov Protsak, Svitlana Hryhoruk), cognitive linguistics and  linguoconceptology (Svitlana Martinek, Oksana Yasinovska, Larysa Hontaruk), semantics and pragmatics (Floriy Batsevych, Halyna Matsiuk, Larysa Hontaruk, Oksana Yasinovska), corpus linguistics (Solomiia Buk), translation studies (Svitlana Hryhoruk). The Department organizes a myriad of international, national and regional scientific conferences, annual national contests of student research papers in sociolinguistics.

The Department maintains close ties with the scientific centers of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics in Belgium, Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia, and France.
