For the last forty years, we have been known for cutting-edge empirically-based theoretical and applied research in a wide range of research areas. We constantly strive to make links with potential users of our work.
The department hosts active research groups in areas such as cognitive linguistics, critical discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, language and gender, literacy, pragmatics and stylistics, and second language learning, assessment and teaching.
The Department has some outstanding resources. We have fully equipped laboratories for eye-tracking, phonetics, EEG (Electroencephalography) and child language analysis.
