Funding Opportunities for Linguistics and English Language within the School of
Languages, Linguistics and Cultures at The University of Manchester
Manchester is an international centre for linguistics and English language. The
Department is virtually unique in the UK and beyond in the breadth of subject
areas and theoretical approaches represented by its members, many of whom are
internationally renowned scholars in their specialisms. Particular strengths in
the discipline include: endangered languages, field linguistics and language
documentation, the linguistics of English (both synchronic and diachronic),
phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax (especially lexical-functional
grammar and construction grammar), typology, language contact and
sociolinguistics, historical linguistics (especially English, Romance and
Germanic), (formal) semantics and pragmatics, and corpus and computational
linguistics. More information about the department and the research interests of
its staff can be found at http://www.llc.manchester.ac.uk/subjects/lel/
The postgraduate community in the School of Languages, Linguistics and Cultures
