The chair of English linguistics covers topics including

  • second and third language acquisition
  • corpus linguistics
  • sociolinguistics

We have set up a phonetics laboratory at the University of Münster. Current projects include the VW-foundation-funded research project on gestures and prosody in multilingual speakers of English and the compilation of the ICE Scotland.
