The course explores the recent history of linguistics and the philosophy of linguistics. Tensions between different conceptions of language are also examined as well as the issues surrounding research methodology in linguistics, sociolinguistics and the sociology of language more specifically. The course combines a mixture of generic research training modules with more specialised modules covering research training and specific linguistic knowledge. Supervision is offered in the following areas: linguistic theory; language variation and change; language evolution, acquisition, and development.
