The School of Linguistics was founded in December 2014. Today, the School offers undergraduate and graduate programs in theoretical and computational linguistics. Linguistics as it is taught and researched at the School does not simply involve mastering foreign languages. Rather, it is the science of language and the methods of its modeling. Research groups in the School of Linguistics study typology, socio-linguistics and areal linguistics, corpus linguistics and lexicography, ancient languages and the history of languages. The School is also developing linguistic technologies and electronic resources: corpora, training simulators, dictionaries, thesauruses, and tools for digital storage and processing of written texts.

In the spring of 2015 I spent a few months at HSE doing an internship at the School of Linguistics, as part of my master's programme in comparative linguistics at my home-university in Ghent (Belgium). The reason for coming to HSE was that I wanted to work with Caucasian languages, with which I long since had a fascination, and a lot of the expertise in that field is concentrated in Moscow. To be honest I didn't really know what I was getting myself into exactly, as my exchange was not part of a specific programme, I was merely referred to professor Daniel of HSE by one of my Belgian professors. My request to come to Moscow for an internship regarding Caucasian languages came a bit out of the blue, and my objectives at that point were fairly vague, which is why I was surprised by how ready people at HSE were to receive and accomodate me. During my stay I contributed to an ongoing project in which grammatical features of Daghestanian languages are linked to a map of the area and worked on my thesis which is also related to these languages. It proved a big advantage to work on my thesis here, since I was able to access material that is unavailable or very hard to obtain in Belgium and also my supervisor brought me into contact with a researcher who has a lot of experience working on this specific theme.
