English Language & Linguistics 2 and 3
English Language and Linguistics 2 and 3 offer young linguists an opportunity to delve further into a variety of topics introduced in Ling 1, along with a few new areas of study and application of linguistic principles to new languages. As in Ling 1, there is a balance between modules investigating the structure of language and others that describe how language is used.
In the second and third-year courses there are five meetings per week: two lectures, two tutorials and one additional session, which will alternate between modules. The lectures and tutorials will be taught in a combined class consisting of English Language and Linguistics 2 and 3 students. Please see the main timetable for times and venues.
English Language and Linguistics 3 students will write a Research Report under supervision during the year. These students will have one additional meeting per week in which they will meet in groups to work on their Research Reports (see below).
The modules to be taught in 2018 will be announced later in January.
English Language and Linguistics 3 Research Report: The research report makes up 15% of the course mark for English Language and Linguistics 3. Students can choose their research topic from a variety of different research themes available. Students must make an early and definite decision regarding the topic of investigation, and liaise regularly with their supervisor who will be appointed according to the area of research chosen by the student. Depending on their decision, students will be placed in a group with other students researching similar topics. These groups will have a meeting once a week, facilitated by the group’s supervisor, at a time agreed on in consultation with the supervisor and group members.
