Together with literary and cultural studies, linguistics belongs to the core of English and American studies. English linguistics at the University of Wuppertal examines the English language in its current state, its many variants and its historical development.

Faculty expertise includes morphology, syntax, prosodic phonology, contrastive linguistics, the theory and analysis of information structure, and historical linguistics. Research in these areas is grounded in an extensive theoretical foundation, to the development of which it seeks to contribute.

Language theories and models, the analysis of varieties of English, and the comparison of English with German are the foci of the curriculum, which is rounded off by courses on phonology and pragmatics. More information on teaching and research can be found on the instructors’ webpages.
