Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication

The Centre for Language, Discourse and Communication is a globally influential centre for language research with exceptional strengths in discourse studies and sociolinguistics.

The over-arching research theme in the Centre is ‘Identities and Mobilities’, which reflects its core strength in research on (multingual) identities in a variety of everyday, institutional and mediated contexts.

The Centre offers extensive research training and supervision on a range of (socio)linguistic methods and frameworks, including: cognitive linguistics, conversation analysis, corpus-assisted discourse studies, discourse & sociolinguistic approaches to social media communication, identities-in-interaction, narrative analysis and small stories research.
