Grammar and Cognition
The CLS research group Grammar and Cognition aims to arrive at a better understanding of form (syntax) and meaning (semantics) in context (pragmatics). We investigate which factors guide hearers to the interpretation and speakers to the production of words, phrases and sentences. In our research, we combine theoretical linguistics with typology, empirical linguistics (experimental and corpus-based research), computational linguistics and literary studies.
Have a look at our Members page for more information about our research interests. Grammar and Cognition also welcomes students at all levels -- Our honours, bachelor’s and master’s students have the opportunity to train their research skills by conducting their own research project under the supervision of our senior members.
