Literary linguistics: Open Access research in English language

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by English Studies at Strathclyde. Particular research specialisms include literary linguistics, the study of literary texts using techniques drawn from linguistics and cognitive science.

The team also demonstrates research expertise in Renaissance studies, researching Renaissance literature, the history of ideas and language and cultural history. English hosts the Centre for Literature, Culture & Place which explores literature and its relationships with geography, space, landscape, travel, architecture, and the environment.

By employing standard statistical techniques of linear fluctuation theory, it is shown how the ensemble averages over statistical distributions of charged massive grains in a dusty plasma can result in "average" dispersion relations for high‐frequency electromagnetic and electrostatic waves. The dispersion relations admit solutions for complex frequencies and wave numbers, suggesting that the waves can be damped (Im ω≠0) or absorbed (Im k≠0) in a dusty plasma.
