Our research

Research in the Department of Applied Linguistics and Communication focuses on the diverse phenomena of multilingualism, which we believe is the rule rather than the exception in today’s world. We adopt a very broad and interdisciplinary approach and believe that it is through rigorous, critical examination of these phenomena that the nature and functions of language and communication can be understood more holistically.

Research centres and networks

Our academics and researchers work together via a wide range of networks, groups and societies. These cut across departments, subjects and areas of expertise, to encourage and enable innovative, interdisciplinary research.
