The LEC is becoming the Centre for Language Evolution

By Kenny | May 6, 2016

We’re evolving! The Language Evolution and Computation Research Unit was established back in 1997 by Jim Hurford and Simon Kirby, and has grown substantially since then to become (we think) the world’s leading group of researchers working on language origins and evolution. To reflect our increased size, and also the increased breadth of the techniques we use (we still build computational models, but it’s not all we do), we’ve decided to rebrand as the Centre for Language Evolution. Look out for a our website and logo, appearing here soon.
