Formal Linguistics Research Group (GLiF)

The Research Group on Formal Linguistics is part of the Research Unit in Linguistics and is led by Dr. Àlex Alsina. The group focuses on the study of different aspects of language: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics.

The members of GLiF work on the formal description of the architecture of human language and the interactions between different modules - phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics - based on data from a number of languages, primarily from the Romance, Germanic and Slavic families, and from signed languages.
