At York St John University, there is a long-standing tradition of the study of language(s) in use, including different modern languages, from Japanese to British Sign Language, and also English itself in all its forms – from Old English to Twitter. Through our teaching and research, we explore how language is used to project identity, establish group membership, entertain, convey information and emotion, create or resist power, and amuse.
