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

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, psycholinguistics and corpus and
computational linguistics. More information about the department and the
research interests of its staff can be found at
The postgraduate community in the School of Languages, Linguistics and Cultures
is one of the largest and most diverse in the UK, enjoying state-of-the-art
facilities and excellent support within a high-quality research environment.
