Informed by our own research, teaching at applied linguistics (english) explores the structure and use of language in context, focussing on a broad range of topics including


  • functional grammar
  • morphology
  • phonetics and phonology
  • semantics and pragmatics
  • discourse analysis
  • (socio)linguistic variation
  • language acquisition and multilingualism
  • neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics

Following a hands-on approach, our courses combine theory and practical exploration, supporting students to enhance their competence in understanding, describing and analysing language.
