Our department hosts the DFG-research unit Questions at the Interfaces . Members of our department participate in the cluster of excellence The Politics of Inequality, in the ccordinated research programmes What If?, The Multilingual Mind, Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing, and Robust Argumentation Machines (RATIO) as well as in numerous individual projects.
Empirical research, computational-linguistic modeling, and linguistic analysis are combining to shape the future of the linguistics. Our six modernly equipped linguistic laboratories take this fully into account and work in close coordination. In these laboratories, studies and experiments are undertaken in computational and corpus linguistics, speech production and perception, as well as psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic fields, and data from field research is provided sustainably.
