The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MPhil in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics is a taught course offering a range of options for graduates seeking a higher academic qualification in language studies and wishing to specialise in general linguistics (including phonetics but not applied linguistics), in historical and comparative linguistics, or in the linguistics of a specific language. After the MPhil, students who are readmitted to continue as confirmed DPhil students may submit a DPhil thesis for examination after one or two further years of work, and the MPhil thesis may be revised and included as part of the DPhil thesis. In this way, a pathway to the DPhil in little more than three years can be offered. In addition to a compulsory paper in linguistic theory, you will specialise in general linguistics (B), Indo-European historical and comparative philology and linguistics (C) or in the linguistics of one or two selected languages (D). A 25,000-word thesis is compulsory for all options. Option B Three exam papers are chosen from the following range of topics: Phonetics and Phonology Syntax Semantics Historical and Comparative Linguistics Psycholinguistics and Neurolinguistics History and Structure of a Language Experimental Phonetics Sociolinguistics You may also ask for one option in another subject in general linguistics; approval will be subject to the availability of proper instruction and provision for examination. Option C You will select two ancient Indo-European languages or language groups (eg Greek, Italic, Celtic, Anatolian, Indo-Iranian, Slavic etc). Three exam papers cover the comparative grammar, the historical grammar, and a number of set texts for linguistic commentary in the two languages or language groups. Option D You may select either ancient (eg Latin, Sanskrit, Akkadian) or modern languages (eg French, Italian, German, Japanese, Slavic languages). There will be three examination papers: (i) the history of one language, or of two historically related languages; (ii) the structure of the language or languages chosen; and (iiia) translation from, and/or linguistic comment on, texts in the language or languages chosen, or (iiib) a project on an aspect of the structure or history of the language, or family of related languages, studied. Subject (iii) may be replaced with any of the modules listed under option B, except for the history and structure of a language.
