The Institute of Linguistics and Language Technology (iLLT) was founded in 1988. Originally called the Institute of Linguistics, it changed its name in 2017 to reflect the evolution in its research interests and competences. 

The iLLT conducts research and teaching in:

  • General and Applied Linguistics
  • Sign Linguistics and Language Disability
  • Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing
  • Experimental Psycholinguistics 
  • Academic English

Part of our mission here at the ILLT is to spearhead collaborative work with research institutes and industrial partners both at the University of Malta and internationally. 

At the iLLT, we offer three undergraduate programmes: a B.A. and B.A. Honours in General Linguistics,  a B.Sc. in Human Language Technology and a B.A. in Language Technology.

At the postgraduate level, we run an M.Sc. in Language and Computation as well as the research-focused M.A. in Linguistics and Ph.D. in Linguistics programmes. We also host the Academic English programme.
