Language and Social Interaction
Social interaction is the home of language. Our research group aims to understand how language is shaped by and for interaction across settings, modalities and cultures, from ordinary conversation to chat-based interactions and from institutional interaction to human-agent interaction.
Our research involves both fundamental questions and applied analyses that provide insights in professional practices. We combine the method of conversation analysis with methods and insights from comparative linguistics and multimodal interaction
Our researchers study a variety of themes relating to interaction. For an overview of our research projects, please visit the page below.
