English Language and/or Linguistics MLitt

Course Description

The MLitt qualification is available in Literature and Linguistics.

Course overview

The English Language and/or Linguistics MLitt is a Master's level degree that is largely based around your own research interests, preparing you for further research within and beyond academia. You will be fully supported by experts situated in one of the largest centres for linguistics research in Europe.

Our course is an individually tailored research Master's degree designed for graduates with a good background in linguistics and/or English language.

The topics are chosen by you, in consultation with your supervisor. We offer supervision in the following areas:

Linguistic theory: syntactic theory and comparative syntax; phonological theory; morphophonology and morphosyntax; philosophy of language; philosophy of linguistics; architecture of the language faculty.

Language variation and change: historical/diachronic linguistics; variationist/comparative linguistics; sociolinguistics; grammaticalization; dialect syntax; corpus analysis; linguistic typology.

Language evolution, acquisition, and development: first language acquisition and development; the acquisition of second language morphosyntax and phonology; evolutionary linguistics.
