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 Second Language Teaching Multilingualism
Applicants are normally required to possess a good primary degree or equivalent qualification. Previous knowledge of linguistics is not a requirement. Students who are not native speakers of English are expected to attend the orientation course in English for Academic Purposes in the CLCS in the month preceding the start of the academic year. Applicants must complete the Personal Statement section of the application form and explain their motivation in applying for their chosen course(s).
