English Language and Linguistics - University of Huddersfield

**Language is how we make sense of the world. It makes us who we are, and is fundamental to society and the communities we all live in. We’ll look at linguistics in depth and give you the chance to learn descriptive terms so you can analyse language and assess how it works. You’ll be introduced to the basic concepts and the theory of different branches of linguistics, like phonetics and morphology.** Why English Language and Linguistics? - State-of-the-art facilities including a forensic linguistics lab, a research and resource centre and conference labs. - Opportunity to take a five-week placement as part of the ‘Language in the Workplace’ module – a chance to see how the language skills you’ve learnt on the course can be applied to communication in a working environment. Get involved in the writing, editing and production of the popular department linguistics magazine, Babel - https://babelzine.co.uk/ - Opportunities to study a modern foreign language alongside your course through our Modern Languages Programme - https://www.hud.ac.uk/inspire/mhm/languages/ - Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). We’ll also encourage you to study the role of language in society and how it helps humans understand things. How we acquire it, the way it changes, and the way it forms an array of ways to communicate. We’ll carry out conversation analysis, sociolinguistics and stylistics to get under the surface of the spoken or written word and understand more about what’s really going on.
