What is T.W.I.S.T.?

T.W.I.S.T. is the study association for linguistics in Leiden. For over twenty years, we’ve been organising activities for our members that allow them to add more depth to their study and meet fellow students along the way. Some of our annual events are the study trip abroad, the T.W.I.S.T. Student Conference, and the Talengala. We also organise lectures, movie nights, game nights, borrels, and much more! Of course, we don’t do all of this by ourselves, but we are assisted by the fantastic members of our committees.

A T.W.I.S.T. membership will allow you to get to know your fellow students, as well as others who are interested in language. You will receive our magazine (the TWISTER) four times a year and will get to participate in the wide variety of activities our board and committees have to offer; maybe you’ll even join one yourself! You will also get to vote in the general assemblies. Most of all, you will make friends and have a lot of fun at T.W.I.S.T.!

  • Student lecture on Romanian

    Wed 29 Mar 2023  19:00 - 21:00

    Lipsius 2.27


    March is the month of student lectures, and that is great, cause who doesn’t love to learn? So buckle your seatbelts, cause Horea is going to take us on an amazing journey through Romanian noun morphology. What’s the better occasion to find out more about how particles suffixed to nouns affect the way nouns interact with determiners/adjectives? Please come if you love charismatic lecturers, snacks and the best Romance language!
