If you wish to focus specifically on the linguistics of the English language then our MA English Language and Linguistics should interest you. “Grammar” is the body of knowledge that enables a speaker to produce and understand the language(s) they speak. We study that knowledge, taking a practical approach to our research through analysis of English corpora, recordings and texts.
Our course allows you to cover a wide range of topics related to English, including:
- Dialectal and social variation
- Conversation analysis
- Language change
- Language rights
