English and Linguistics

This combined degree also explores many facets of English as a world language by placing both language and literature firmly in their historical and global contexts. You will study the history of the English language; its spread around the world; analyse how it has been adapted by different cultures; learn how Shakespeare's plays have influenced the world and study literatures written in English from around the globe. In this joint degree Linguistics develops an understanding of the way languages are universally structured and trains students to master all the basic skills necessary for the analysis of different sound systems and semantics. In addition, students may also take units dealing with language and social communication (focusing on the interaction of language and social groups), morphology (the structure of words), historical linguistics (the historical development of languages), phonetics and the structure of an African or Asian language.
