Program description

In the programme Linguistics, English Language the focus lies mostly on synchronic data on linguistic variation and the socio-cultural circumstances under which language is used.

In the past, most of the attention within 'English language and linguistics' went to the philological (or diachronic) aspects of language (which are fascinating in a language dating from the early Middle Ages and which has changed so much). However today, the focus has shifted somewhat toward synchronic data on linguistic variation and the socio-cultural circumstances under which language is used. Special attention is given to theoretical models explaining how we learn and use language and what causes it to change.
