English and Applied Linguistics

Englische und Angewandte Sprachwissenschaft


Research in English and Applied Linguistics focuses in particular on the investigation of institutional, organisational and media communication in professional contexts. The dominant research approach taken is (ethnographic) conversation analysis. Current projects in this field include the conversation analytic investigation of interactions in sports commentary and in coaching. Of particular interest is the role of English as a lingua franca in multilingual and multicultural professional contexts. Further research fields include (variational) pragmatics, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis and forensic linguistics.
