Modern Languages & Linguistics

Pembroke offers a wide range of joint honours degree courses with a Modern Language. The combination with Linguistics is popular, and Pembroke has a Tutor in Linguistics, as well as a team of Modern Linguists.

In your study of Linguistics, you will be introduced to the analysis of the nature and structure of human language (including topics such as how words and sentences are formed, how we make and hear sounds, how languages change and vary, and how language is organised in the brain) and you will apply these ideas to the study of your chosen language.
