Linguistics in Cardiff (LinC)

The network provides a forum and resource for linguistics research.

The Research Network for Linguistics in Cardiff (LinC) was created in 2009 to provide a forum and resource for linguistics research at Cardiff University and in particular for researchers interested in Systemic Functional Linguistics.

The LinC network holds regular meetings which provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas with respect to our individual and joint research projects. They also offer support in developing and furthering our understanding of Systemic Functional Linguistics.

Information about these events are listed on our blog.

We have a number of vacancies for new PhD students interested in working in the areas of Systemic Functional linguistics, Phonology and Intonation, Corpus Linguistics, and Cognitive Linguistics.

Each member of staff within the Centre for Language and Communication Research, which is the home of LinC, has his or her own areas of interest and speciality.
