Language Research Centre
A global hub for language based research
The Language Research Centre (LRC) is a global hub for single, inter- and multi- disciplinary empirical research into language data and processes. It draws together academics and postgraduate researchers from across Swansea University and connects their activities with those of the Centre’s global network of Associate Members and distance learning doctoral students.
The principal mission of the Language Research Centre is to facilitate high impact, cutting-edge applied research across a range of domains (education, government, health, finance, literature, translations, etc) and perspectives (lexical, morpho-syntactical, discursive, stylistic, computational, historical, etc).
The Language Research Centre encompasses a wide range of fields that share a common focus on applied research into language. These include Second Language Acquisition, Computer Assisted Language Learning, Cognitive Psychology of Language, Discourse Analysis, Pragmatics, Sociolinguistics, Historical Linguistics, Language Teaching and Assessment, Lexical Studies, Morphology, Psycholinguistics, Terminology, Stylistics and Multimodality.
The LRC has an active seminar series. Click here to see the programme for 2012-13.
