Research Lines

1. Language and Humanities

Having as a common epistemological axis the interrelations between linguistic theories and practices and knowledge in the field of humanities, the researches that derive from the projects sheltered in this line start from the presupposition of the existence of disciplinary and interdisciplinary tensions and interfaces in the language studies. Among the various approaches that operate within this context, we highlight the researches that specifically derive from the relations between Language, Philosophy and Classical Studies – such as language and representation, language and ethics, history and epistemology of Linguistics, text and genres of the Greek and Latin cultures –, as well as from the diverse perspectives of Applied Linguistics – such as: language and language education, discourse and cultural diversity, literacy and technology, linguistic policies and interaction in professional context.

2. Linguistics and Cognition

Having as a common epistemological axis the notion of language as a cognitive phenomenon, the projects sheltered in this line start from the assumption that linguistic studies are characterized as a means of understanding the functioning of the mechanisms of human cognition. The researches developed are based on theoretical, computational, processing and use-based language models. In this sense, the teachers of this line are affiliated to the fields of Linguistics typically recognized as Language Processing and Acquisition, Grammar Theory, Computational Linguistics and Cognitive-Functional Linguistics.
