Integrated Approaches to Linguistic Analysis

Master’s level
7.5 credits (ECTS)


The course aims to enhance and improve your critical skills in applying various linguistic paradigms to the analysis of naturally occurring, real-life linguistic data (for example various forms of so-called interactional data such as face-to-face conversations or interactions via new media technologies, among others).

You will learn/practice a number of different theoretical and methodological approaches to linguistic analysis (e.g. cognitive, pragmatic, corpus-based, sociolinguistic, etc.) in relation to specific linguistic issues. Each approach is presented and discussed as regards its potential advantages, drawbacks and limitations. You thereafter practice ways to integrate and synthesize these different approaches in order to produce a more holistic application of different paradigms.

Prerequisites and selection


The requirement for admission to the course is a Bachelor's degree, 15 credits of which must be in Linguistics.

In addition, English 6/IELTS 6.5/TOEFL 580 is required in all parts, or the equivalent.
