Course summary

We offer research supervision in a wide range of subdisciplines of English language and linguistics. We welcome projects on any variety of English and are able to supervise the description and analysis of a range of languages.

AREAS OF STUDY

We particularly welcome applications in the areas of:

  • descriptive grammar (including typological approaches) and/or theoretical syntax
  • discourse analysis (especially political and media discourse, discourse of identity, corpus linguistic approaches)
  • language variation and change
  • morphology, phonology, orthography
  • pragmatics (including intercultural pragmatics and im/politeness)
  • semantics, lexicology, (meta)lexicography
  • stylistics.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
