Linguistics

The course aims to give students a thorough grounding in modern theoretical linguistics. Students gain a basic understanding of the three core areas of linguistics: phonetics and phonology; syntax; and semantics and pragmatics, and are then able to tailor the programme to meet their personal linguistic interests.

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required.

Course modules

Core modules: syntax; semantics and pragmatics; phonetics and phonology;
foundations of linguistics. Students choose one option module from a selection that includes the following: advanced phonological theory; advanced semantic theory; current issues in syntax; intermediate generative grammar; issues in pragmatics; language acquisition; philosophy of language; linguistics of sign language; morphology; neurolinguistics; readings in syntax; semantic-pragmatic development; sociolinguistics; stuttering.

Assessment methods

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, small-group teaching (tutorials or backup classes) and a virtual learning environment. Some courses also involve workshops or practical classes. Assessment is through take home and unseen examination, essays, presentations, assignments and the dissertation.
