John Lowe awarded a five-year ERC Starting Grant

The Faculty of Oriental Studies would like to congratulate John Lowe, who has been awarded a five-year European Research Council Starting Grant for the project LINGUINDIC - Linguistics from India: new ideas for modern linguistics from ancient India.

The project will focus on ancient Indian contributions to linguistic thought in three broad areas: morphosyntax and formal language systems, semantics/pragmatics and the philosophy of language, and phonetics/phonology. In all three fields ancient Indian analyses provide new perspectives which challenge standard assumptions of modern Western linguistics.
