|Description:||We all use language, and we all have an opinion on what makes good or bad English. But we very rarely stop to think about how and why language works; how words combine to inspire us and move us, to persuade, encourage and amuse us – or even how we acquire language in the first place. Swansea’s English Language degrees have been designed to provide concise and balanced coverage of linguistic theory and practice.
The Department of English Language and Literature is ranked 7th in the UK within the recent Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014), gaining a score of 100% for the social impact of its research activities.
