English Language & Linguistics
Welcome to the School of English Literature, Language & Linguistics at the University of Sheffield.
If you’re viewing this page, the chances are you’ve got one of our Admissions Brochures from an Open Day, and you’re looking for the suggested answers to the linguistics challenges it contains. If so, we hope you enjoyed being a linguist for a few minutes, and the challenge of studying the language that you use – and probably take for granted – every day. (If, by some chance, you’ve found this page and haven’t got a Brochure containing the puzzles, you can download a copy in PDF format by clicking here).
If these challenges have sparked or heightened your interest in studying language, we’d love to help you develop your passion through one of our degree programmes. To that end, we hope the information in the Brochure was useful to you, but please remember that we are only an email away if you have any further questions we can help with, so do please get in touch.
