M.Litt. in English Language and Linguistics

Linguistic Contexts

Linguistic Structures is one of the two core programme modules for the MLitt in English Language and Linguistics. These modules, which run concurrently, provide students with a thorough grounding in the central concepts, theoretical approaches and practical techniques used in linguistic research, and is the foundation for the option modules on the programme.

Linguistic Contexts focuses on how meaning is constructed and interpreted (semantics, pragmatics) and on the different contexts (social, historical) in which language is used.

Available as a core module in Autumn 2015. Module convenor: Andrew Smith.
