Department of Language and Communication
The Department of Language and Communication covers a wide range of research within language and communication studies. Broadly concerned with investigating how humans create meaning, the Institute's research is characterised by a shared focus on linguistic and communicative forms and their concrete realisations. These are investigated within and across a range of research areas such as "Language Acquisition", "Cognition", "Interaction", "Organisational Communication", "Multimodality", and "Grammatical Description and Theory ". The common interests found within this diversity create a dynamism and synergy that allow for the continuous development of new interdisciplinary collaborations within the Department and beyond.
