AI-generated language and algorithms are going to be more present in our lives and the way we express ideas around areas like gender is shifting. We’ll provide fascinating research insights into the nature of language, as well as the role it plays in shaping our identity and how we interact with others. It won’t take you long to see why we’ve been the top-ranked research unit in linguistics in the UK for 20 years, in each of the last four national Research Excellence Framework assessments. The latest insights You’ll struggle to find anywhere else where conversations about linguistics are as diverse. One day you’ll hear about our work preserving the cultural heritage of local communities, the next we’ll tell you about how we provide language-awareness training to help reduce social bias.

Research skills are sought after by employers, so we’ll help you become confident collecting and analysing data from experiments, interviews, fieldwork and more.
