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.
If you want to join our society, click on the wug above. If you have any feedback, questions, or a linguistic experiment that you’d like us to advertise for you, feel free to get in touch with at eulangsoc at gmail dot com.
EUSA Society Oscars 2011 – “Best Academic Society”!
After missing out on the top-slot (Best Society 2011) we won a special surprise award at the end of the EUSA (Edinburgh University Students’ Association) Society Oscars 2011 as the only academic society to be short-listed for Best Society; it was said that we are a “model academic society” with a “great blend of social and academic events“.
We are very pleased and excited about this and want to thank EUSA and everyone that has contributed to this recognition. Whether helping to run the society, supporting us at our events or simply visiting the website you have helped make the past academic year(s) incredibly successful in many ways.
We have a variety of events and services, among others:
- Soap Vox Lecture Series (more information given below)
- Academic Families (more information given below)
- Discussion groups
- Socials (in the past e.g. quiz nights, scrabble nights, Red Nose Day Fundraiser…)
We also have a blog, with linguistic musings by society members.
