Department of Language and Communication

The Department of Language and Communication covers a wide range of research within language and communication studies. Broadly concerned with investigating how humans create meaning, the department's research is characterised by a shared focus on linguistic and communicative forms and their concrete realisations.

These are investigated within and across a range of research areas such as:

  • Language Acquisition
  • Cognition
  • Interaction
  • Organisational Communication
  • Multimodality
  • Grammatical Description and Theory

The common interests found within this diversity create a dynamism and synergy that allow for the continuous development of new interdisciplinary collaborations within the department and beyond.
