Languages

Our Language programs combine best practice in learning languages at all levels with leading research in key areas for deeper cultural understanding and communication. We work closely with other programs in the Faculty of Arts and the rest of the University to connect languages into all degrees via breadth or the Diploma of Languages.

Linguistics and Applied Linguistics

Our linguistics focus promotes working together in language teaching, learning and assessment strategies, drawing on the expertise of our Linguistics and Applied Linguistics discipline area and our research centres and units. We also provide a focal point for reflection and research in all areas of linguistics, and in the interface between language and culture.

Our discipline areas are:

Researcher Lucy Davidson and Murrinhpatha language consultant Joseline Perdjert transcribing children’s speech, near Wadeye, Northern Territory
