Course Introduction

This programme gives you the analytical skills and deep knowledge of language that you gain from studying linguistics, plus the chance to do hands'on work collecting and analysing data. You’ll develop systematic ways of understanding how the modern English language works, how it’s used and how it changes, looking at situations as diverse as youth language in our multicultural and multilingual cities, or the English used in the media and politics. You’ll consider how new technologies shape the form of English and whether the spread of English in the world is changing or even killing other languages.
