Course summary

Important notice – campus change This course will move to the Belfast campus. Students will change campus part way through this course. Are you the kind of person who notices things about language? Do you like words? Do you notice different people’s use of language, their accents, their word choices, maybe even their grammar? Did you like talking about grammar in school? If so, then linguistics is for you. Here are some of the questions that linguists ask: Why are there so many different languages? What do they have in common? How do children acquire language? What happens when we have problems using language, for example after a stroke? What is meaning and where do we get it from? How do we produce and comprehend sentences? What are the cultural, social and ideological processes that underlie the way we use language? If you want to find out more about these questions, apply for Language and Linguistics.
