Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Program Description: What makes the MA in Language and Linguistics unique is the flexibility of its structure and the range of taught modules on offer. You take one core module and a dissertation relating to any area of language or linguistics that we teach. We offer pathways in Corpus Linguistics, Literacy Studies, Sociolinguistics, Stylistics, and Theoretical and Descriptive Linguistics in order to focus choices. However, you do not have to stick to a pathway if you prefer a general approach. We also offer an extended dissertation option.

The individual modules on this programme are updated from year to year and are taught by leading figures such as Mark Sebba (bilingualism), Elena Semino (stylistics) and Chris Hart (critical discourse analysis).
