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.

RT @samkirkham: I re-read this paper yesterday for @PhoneticsLab reading group - it's such a wonderful exploration of the relationship between theory and measurement, how to deal with incongruence between the two, and avoiding interpretative errors. Highly recommended!! https://t.co/W39KtXaswX https://t.co/dzHnGxbQ8M
RT @clairelnance: Social catchup for the end of term yesterday with @PhoneticsLab lovely colleagues @tn75146488, @samkirkham and other staff and students. Yes, we were also slightly alarmed at the size of a medium coffee bucket these days. @tn75146488 hasn't slept since! https://t.co/l6emeJgs9u
