Linguistics is the study of human language in its various forms and uses. Linguistics explores the connection between language, culture and knowledge; between discourse, belief and behaviour. It examines the role of language in human communication; the way people use language to interact with one another and their environment; language acquisition; preservation and loss. The University of Adelaide's research and teaching are informed by the social nature of language and by systemic functional linguistics. Applied linguists study many areas of language use, including: learning and teaching languages; communication practices in workplaces and in the media; language and technology literacy practices; language-related learning and communication difficulties. The study of linguistics will develop professional expertise in fields such as: language, communication and technologies (CALL); language in education (ESL, TESOL, Literacies); language planning and language maintenance; languages teaching (first, second and foreign languages); workplace communication.
