Course content

This programme introduces students to the central concepts and the analytic techniques of general linguistics and phonetics - the scientific study of the human faculty of language. It is designed so that it requires no previous study of linguistics. The course involves the study both of theoretical models of language, and of the techniques of the linguistic and phonetic description of a wide range of languages. Students take six modules and undertake a research project leading to a 15,000 word dissertation. Four core modules are mandatory and two are elective options.

Core Modules:

Describing Grammar
Describing Meaning
Describing the sounds of languages
Laboratory phonetics and phonology

The elective courses may include:

History and Globalisation of English
Corpus Linguistics
Technology, Language, and Communication
Language Variation and Change
Advanced Syntactic Theory
Linguistic Pragmatics
Bilingualism and the Maintenance of Irish
