The Edinburgh University Linguistics and English Language Society is a society for appreciation, study, conversation, etc. of language.
The society was restarted in 2009 by some students who wanted to have an undergraduate forum for linguistics that extended beyond the classroom to provide support, friendship, and community.
What we do
We have a variety of events and services, among others:
- Academic Lectures
We hold fortnightly lectures on a variety of topics in Linguistics. Click here to see what we’ve had in the past.
We hold socials every other week when there is no lecture. These can vary from boardgame nights to
- Academic Support
Other than FamiLing, we also often hold study sessions around exam-time.
We also have a blog, with (occasional) linguistic musings by society members.
