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.
