This MA programme is designed to familiarise you with a broad range of topics within phonetics and phonology and give you the necessary skills to develop your own research in these fields. You will learn how to collect and analyse phonetic and phonological data, and how to use it to answer theoretical questions. Students will study the sounds and sound patterns of the languages of the world from cognitive and social angles, combining theory and data, along with specialisms in language change, acquisition, prosody, spoken interaction and sociophonetics.
