    Abstract

    The talk will present the recently formed Linguistics Strategy Group. The Group is currently a small working group with support and representation from LLAS, UCML and CILT, as well as the learned societies in the various sub-areas of linguistics (the Philological Society, the LAGB, BAAL, BAAP, the Henry Sweet Society and the AFLS). The aim of the Group is to allow academic linguists from across the spectrum to collaborate in promoting the discipline with its various stakeholders. The Group is currently working on projects: (a) to determine the size of the discipline in the UK HE sector and how this has changed over the last five years; (b) to heighten awareness of what the discipline has to offer society at large; and, (c) to encourage interest amongst potential applicants to programmes in the discipline. The work of the talk will be of interest to linguists from all any institutional background, which stand to benefit from current and future activities of the Group.
