The benefits of Linguistics

Professor David Adger explains how Queen Mary’s location has two key benefits for linguistics students.

First, we get to use the capital almost as a petri dish: because of this diversity, English changes at pace here.

Also, there are people from all over the world living and working in London – giving us easy access to different tongues for research.

The teaching team includes senior researchers whose texts you’ll probably study. And we also have new Doctors who are shaping the topic for generations to come. All of which means Queen Mary is a hugely inspirational and exciting place to study.
