Linguistics

The linguistics research group has a strong interest in sociolinguistics with a special emphasis on pidgin and creole languages and varieties of English in regions such as Africa, North America, and the British Isles. Above and beyond that, there is a strong research interest in morphology, language change, standardization processes, causation and areas of applied linguistics such as sign language, forensic linguistics, first language acquisition, multilingualism, and English as a lingua franca.
