SCHOOL OF ENGLISH AND LINGUISTICS

Department of Linguistics


About the Department


The Linguistics department is one of the oldest in the UK, 
and the only one in Wales. It was established in 1960 and 
became part of the School of English and Linguistics in 
1989. The Professor of English, Professor Tom Corns, is 
currently Head of the School.

The department has an established staff of seven, including 
two Professors and three Senior Lecturers. There is one 
Graduate Assistant and several part time Tutorial 
Assistants. In addition, Professor David Crystal holds the 
position of Honorary Professorial Fellow, and Professor 
Alan Thomas the position of Research Professor.

The department currently offers BAs in Linguistics and 
Linguistics with English Language and an MA in Linguistics. 
The latter is part of a recently introduced Ph.D. 
Programme. From 2000 we shall be introducing two new degree 
schemes, English Language and English Language and 
Literature (the latter will be taught jointly with the 
Literature Department). The department has some outstanding 
Ph.D. students who regularly present papers at national and 
international meetings. The department offers a broad range 
of undergraduate courses, which seek to accommodate the 
interests of a diverse body of students, and offers Ph.D. 
supervision in most areas of linguistics. 
 

The department is an important centre for linguistic 
research, particularly in the areas of syntax, language 
acquisition and pragmatics. In the last UFC Research 
Assessment Exercise, it received a rating of 3A. It is 
important to us to improve on this rating, and to this end 
we aim to keep teaching commitments below 90 hours per year 
for all staff who are research active. Members of the 
department have organized some seven international 
conferences since 1992, which have brought numerous 
distinguished linguists to Bangor, and a weekly research 
seminar has welcomed speakers from many UK and European 
universities as well as the United States. Members of the 
department are also involved in interdisciplinary research, 
especially with members of the Psychology department, with 
whom a Bangor Centre for Psycholinguistics has recently 
been established.
