Linguistics English Language
Explore your own interests in English language and linguistics, supported by the expertise of our staff.
You’ll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. We have supervisors with experience in most areas of English language and linguistics including, for example, multilingualism, second language acquisition, comparative and theoretical syntax, Romance linguistics, linguistic minorities, the construction of linguistic, ethnic and cultural identities, and empirical approaches to the study of language.
You’ll conduct your research in a collaborative environment with strong links to a number of other centres in the University and the wider community. We host and take part in many research-oriented events for staff and postgraduate students, including our regular Faculty and departmental research seminars and international conferences.
We’ll provide you with many opportunities for career development and training, in areas like writing up a paper for publication; placing an academic article; giving a conference paper; the doctoral writing style; updates on research methods and literature searches; internet training; editing skills for doctoral research; subsequent monograph publication; and dealing with festivals, agents, and publishers. You might also be able to take on teaching responsibilities in the department or organise research events like seminars and conferences.
In conjunction with the University’s research support, you can request specific support for writing-up, conference papers, general research methods and other research skills if you need it.
