Course content

The School of English at Nottingham has long been in the forefront of research and teaching in the interface between language, literature and culture.

The Literary Linguistics MA provides an exciting opportunity to explore the interface of language, cognition, literature and culture. You will work with several leading world figures while discovering your own position as a stylistician. The programme covers a wide range of material, with options to develop your own thinking and pursue your own interests and research.

The principle of language study that we have established at Nottingham combines theoretical and ideological dimensions with practical applications. We believe in a humane linguistics and a rational approach to literary scholarship.

This course explores the role of language in literature using a variety of approaches, ranging from discourse analysis to corpus linguistics, and cognitive poetics. We believe that linguistics and literary study cannot be separated, and we aim to turn you into a creative-thinking interdisciplinary expert in literary linguistics.
