Linguistics and Phonetics - University of Leeds

Language plays a pivotal role in all human affairs. Linguistics seeks to understand how it works – how it is structured, used in society, and represented in the mind – while phonetics looks at how sounds are produced and transmitted. Together, these disciplines offer you a deep understanding of the ways that humans communicate. This degree will introduce you to the fundamentals of language, including theories of grammar and the production of speech sounds. Teaching staff have such diverse research interests that we can offer a wide range of optional modules allowing you to pursue the areas that interest you, such as psycholinguistics, language acquisition, sociolinguistics, language contact and change, pragmatics, and discourse analysis. Combining theoretical study with both quantitative and qualitative research, this degree equips you with a wide range of skills as well as a deep and broad understanding of a crucial facet of human behaviour.
