Study English Linguistics in Germany

M.A

Description

Applied Linguistics is an interdisciplinary field of research and practice dealing with problems relating to language and communication in society, the media, organizations, business and politics. Students in this M.A. program are given the tools to identify problems and to work on solving them by applying linguistic theories and employing empirical and experimental methods (see also the University of Bonn's Studienscout website for this program for further information).

detailed description

The program aims at developing knowledge of the theories and methods used in intercultural communication, second language acquisition, language processing, and translation studies. Course topics include interpersonal communication, regional and social variation in language behavior, (im)politeness across cultures, pragmatic competence, writing in a second language, and cognitive processes in translating.

Students in this program are strongly encouraged to design and conduct their own research projects from the outset. For this purpose we offer access to and support in using linguistic research facilities. The Research Centre for Empirical Pragmatics provides students with a variety of research tools such as recording equipment, linguistic corpora, and software for data gathering, processing and analysis.

This program gives an overview of the field of Applied Linguistics and provides specialization in a wide range of subdisciplines. The core modules are intercultural communication, second language acquisition, language processing, and translation studies. Teaching and research supervision are also offered in pragmatics, discourse analysis, genre analysis, sociolinguistics, dialectology, cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics, and metalexicography.

Focus on research, theories and methods

There is a strong focus on research, theories and methodology. Students are given assistance in developing their own research questions, adopting a suitable theoretical framework and selecting an appropriate method. A variety of research tools can be made available. The module 'Research Trends' familiarizes students with current research developments in Applied Linguistics and ongoing research projects worldwide. In this module, internationally renowned scholars give talks and lectures and teach workshops. There is also the possibility to present your research at one of our conferences. Our last conference, the Second Bonn Applied English Linguistics Conference (BAELc2) with a special focus on Variational Pragmatics, was held in June 2013 and was attended by linguists from various countries.

Gangster Pimping

The Fifth Freedom
Gangster Pimping in the Culture of Terrorism
Stephen Marshall: Hi Noam.
Noam Chomsky: Hello. What are we going to be talking about today?
Well. I’d like to begin with a brief discussion about your work in linguistics and how that developed into a major concentration on U.S. foreign policy. I’d like to then move on to the subject of the current conflict, looking at it from the perspective that is presented in The Culture of Terrorism. And then I want to focus on stuff like the Fifth Freedom and your opinion about how the Bush Administration is handling the retaliations
