The Linguistics Section at the University of Aberdeen is proud to announce
a new Masters programme: MLitt in Sociolinguistics.

The programme will include elements of both classic Variationist
Sociolinguistics and also the Sociology of Language, along with Historical
Linguistics. Students whose interests lie with languages other than English
are actively encouraged to apply; students wishing to research Scots or
English topics are equally welcome.

This programme builds upon our considerable strength in this field, as
witnessed by recently achieved sizeable external grants on subjects such as
lexical change in the Scottish fishing communities, Police communication
strategies and systems and the literary and linguistic outcomes of the use
of dialect in Scottish and Irish fiction.

If you are interested, please contact Dr Robert McColl Millar
(r.millarabdn.ac.uk; +44-(0)1224-273909).

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) 
Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations 
can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax 
payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your 
financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any 
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting 
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills 
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure 
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. 
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
