Hello and welcome to the first edition of the Swansea Linguistics Journal!
Run by students, this is our annual online journal to showcase some of the best work done by students throughout their time at university. We have been lucky enough this year to have numerous submissions from 2nd year, 3rd year and Masters students, and it has been quite the job deciding which ones we were going to include!
The journal will cover a whole range of topics such as research projects within linguistics; the history of English; the acquisition of language; and the teaching of English to speakers of other languages to name but a tiny portion of what we do, with the aim of showing you what we do within within the new Applied Linguistics department at Swansea University!
Each issue will also have a lecturer showcase, where we get to see what research projects our lecturers get up to when they aren’t at the front of the class or pouring over our endless assignments!
