The course covers linguistic theories and methods, focusing on corpus linguistics and its connection to the study of change and variation in different varieties of English today.

The course includes an introduction to recent developments in corpus linguistic theories and methods. The students acquire knowledge of how to use various kinds of "big language data" – not just on the advanced level of academic studies, but also in other contexts.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
