To the previous website of the chair

English Linguistics is concerned with the analysis of the English language system as a whole, comprising first of all the core areas of linguistics: the sound system (phonetics and phonology), the lexicon (lexicology, morphology, lexicography), meaning (semantics), and grammar (syntax, inflectional morphology).


Furthermore, it deals with the distribution of English (social and regional varieties), its historical development (diachronic linguistics) and its uses in everyday life (pragmatics, text and discourse linguistics).
