Why study Linguistics and English Language at Manchester?

Linguistics and English Language are the ideal subjects for the analytical mind. You’ll delve into language – a faculty that defines human beings and impacts our lives on a global scale. You’ll learn about the sounds and structures
of language, how words relate to thought, as well as how we use them to convey meaning, develop relationships and establish identities. You’ll also study how children acquire language and how language changes over time.
