About this course

The central theme of this unique programme is questioning how languages fit together and how can we learn to understand each other's language. This programme is unique because language and communication are treated as a single unit with each field complementing the other. The programme is also special because it focuses strongly on empirical research. Students will be studying real language in real-life situations and they will use observations to develop possible theories. Later, students will test these theories against everyday reality. In this way they will discover the richness of both language and communication.
