Find out about English Language and Linguistics at Sussex, based within the School of Media, Arts and Humanities, and search for people who work there.
Here at Sussex, the study of English language is the linguistics of English. This involves studying all aspects of the language: its structure, its history, its use – how it exists in our individual minds, in our society, and crossculturally. We also compare English with other languages, and explore the effects of language contact on varieties of English.
Our faculty are recognised scholars, who have won academic prizes and research awards and our courses are widely seen as inventive, inviting interdisciplinary study.
