SCHOOL OF ENGLISH AND LINGUISTICS

Department of Linguistics


About the Department


The Linguistics department is one of the oldest in the UK,
and the only one in Wales. It was established in 1960 and
became part of the School of English and Linguistics in
1989. The Professor of English, Professor Tom Corns, is
currently Head of the School.

The department has an established staff of seven, including
two Professors and three Senior Lecturers. There is one
Graduate Assistant and several part time Tutorial
Assistants. In addition, Professor David Crystal holds the
position of Honorary Professorial Fellow, and Professor
Alan Thomas the position of Research Professor.

The department currently offers BAs in Linguistics and
Linguistics with English Language and an MA in Linguistics.
The latter is part of a recently introduced Ph.D.
Programme. From 2000 we shall be introducing two new degree
schemes, English Language and English Language and
Literature (the latter will be taught jointly with the
Literature Department). The department has some outstanding
Ph.D. students who regularly present papers at national and
international meetings. The department offers a broad range
of undergraduate courses, which seek to accommodate the
interests of a diverse body of students, and offers Ph.D.
supervision in most areas of linguistics.


The department is an important centre for linguistic
research, particularly in the areas of syntax, language
acquisition and pragmatics. In the last UFC Research
Assessment Exercise, it received a rating of 3A. It is
important to us to improve on this rating, and to this end
we aim to keep teaching commitments below 90 hours per year
for all staff who are research active. Members of the
department have organized some seven international
conferences since 1992, which have brought numerous
distinguished linguists to Bangor, and a weekly research
seminar has welcomed speakers from many UK and European
universities as well as the United States. Members of the
department are also involved in interdisciplinary research,
especially with members of the Psychology department, with
whom a Bangor Centre for Psycholinguistics has recently
been established.
