FYI: New MA Program in English Linguistics at Lille3

Author: Ilse Depraetere

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

FYI Body: One of the central concerns of the two-year MA programme in English
Linguistics at Lille 3 is at the heart of what language is all about:
meaning, and how it is brought about. The programme is not committed
to one particular theoretical framework and the emphasis is on
solid empirical description (e.g., via corpus analyses) and
a usage-based approach. Students acquire a solid foundation for
linguistic analysis built on extensive and careful data analysis.
At the end of the Master’s programme, students are equipped with
sound methodological skills, a capacity for problem solving, and they
have learnt how to develop an argument and how to present it in a
written or an oral form.

The Master in English Linguistics in Lille 3 is one of the few
programmes in France which offer courses in Cognitive Linguistics
and/or Construction Grammar.

A more detailed description of the programme, the course schedule,
information on registration (also for foreign students), and faculty
can be found on the MA web site:
