  Cross-Linguistic Strategies of Denotation: Advancing data and methods in lexical typology
  Dr J List
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Although on first sight there are many different ways in which the languages classify the world around us, many of the techniques used for naming are surprisingly similar across very different languages.
  Co-estimating Human Mobility and Language Dispersal with Ancient DNA and Linguistic Data
  Dr S. Schiffels
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Human mobility is a key factor for the spread of genes and languages, but it affects them in different ways. While genes spread exclusively by movements of people, cultural traits such as languages can spread independently.
  Language and landscape: the cross-linguistic perspective on ‘forests’
  Dr A Corr
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
What is a forest? Interdisciplinary research in geographic information sciences and linguistics shows that not only do official bodies differ in the criteria and measurements used to arrive at a definition, but that the world’s languages provide a variety of answers, depending on how their linguistic systems encode landscape-related concepts.
  Contact and change in the diversification of the Indo-Iranic languages
  Prof R. Gray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Indo-Iranic is the largest, and historically the most geographically extensive, branch of the Indo-European language family. It consists of hundreds of languages spread over a vast area of west, central and south Asia, with diffusion even further afield along with migration in the modern period.
  Eurasian Corridors of Communication: Fruits, Crops, and Words
  Dr M Robbeets
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The plants on your kitchen table often have a poorly understood history, and an interdisciplinary approach is necessary to study their origin and spread.
  The evolution and diversification of the Caucasian languages
  Prof R. Gray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The importance of the Caucasus for the study of language contact cannot be underestimated. It is the most linguistically diverse area of Europe, with ample evidence of centuries-long contact both within itself and with neighbouring linguistic areas.
  Question Answering Systems supported by Reinforcement and Machine Learning Methods
  Dr A Freitas
Applications accepted all year round
The construction of Question Answering systems over unstructured and heterogeneous data sources requires the coordination of different Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms, data representation models and linguistic resources.
  Heritage language bilingualism: challenges and opportunities.
  Dr M Sheehan
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Research Area. Social Inclusion and marginalised communities. Over 21% of primary/17% of secondary pupils in English state schools speak a heritage language (DfE, 2018), with 18 languages spoken by more than 10,000 pupils each in 2012 (DfE, 2012).
  Evolution of Nonverbal Communication: Music and the Voice
  Prof S Schweinberger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Linguistic evolution is a prime topic for the IMPRS, but the human voice can also be used for communicating nonverbal social signals, by spontaneously using prosody and intonation.
