LIP - Language, Ideology and Power Group

We investigate the way language and other semiotic resources are used to communicate, legitimate and instantiate social identities and relations in a variety of discursive contexts.

As such, our work falls broadly in the field of Critical Discourse Studies (CDS), an approach to discourse and discourse analysis which focusses on the way social issues are constructed through text and talk.
