Res. group. 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.
