Featured Linguist!

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: The Department of English Language and Linguistics is a member of the School of English. Beside specialised degree schemes in English Language with Linguistics and medieval English, it offers a Single Honours Degree in English Language and Literature with the Department of English Literature. Both departments offer a wide range of Dual degree programmes. It also offers postgraduate studies, such as a MA in Applied Linguistics or Historical Languages Studies.
Available Financial Aid: The University of Sheffield has made available up to two fully-funded one-year awards for postgraduate study in the Department of English Language and Linguistics for entry in September 2003. These awards cover all tuition fees, at the rate paid by UK and EU students, and provide a maintenance grant at the basic research council rate. They are available to: a) students taking the research-track MA course in Historical Language Studies and intending to go on to doctoral research afterwards; b) students embarking on the first year of doctoral research in the Department. These awards are competitive, and only students who are also applying to the Arts and Humanities Research Board in the current round of funding applications will be eligible. There is no separate application form. You will be automatically entered in the internal competition by virtue of applying for a place here in conjunction with your AHRB application. See the AHRB website for more information about how to apply and who is eligible for funding from that source (http://www.ahrb.ac.uk/postgraduate). The Department also provides a number of fee-waivers to promising postgraduate students who have been unable to obtain funding from any other source. These fee waivers cover all fees at the home/EU rate but do not provide any stipend.For further information, or to have an informal discussion, please contact: the postgraduate director, Dr Andrew Linn; or the Head of Department, Prof. April McMahon.
