Axe(s) of research

The dynamic language research group (DDL) was founded in 1984. Its founders had set themselves an objective of actively participating in the revival of linguistic research, particularly insisting on an inter-disciplinary approach.

Whilst inter-disciplinary activity is not an objective per se, it represents an indispensable tool in the search of answers to those issues which cannot be resolved using a purely disciplinary approach. A multi-disciplinary approach often makes it possible to achieve major scientific advances, particularly in the areas of disciplinary interfacing. Creating a synergy between researchers who work in different areas demands strict functioning and a genuine desire for transparency.

DDL is organised in 4 teams (Acquisition and cognition from infancy to adulthood, Evolution; Identification, Description and typology) in which lecturers and researchers in Human and social sciences, Life sciences as well as Technology information and communication sciences all work in synergy, supported by the unit's engineering and administrative personnel who, in such a way, also takes part in the research.

Even though the diversity of subjects treated may impose certain differences between the groups, the clear rules of operation are always given priority: the majority of workers base their work on constitution and evaluation of the corpus and databases, which allows them to study the mechanics of language trends in their diversity. In addition to these fundamental aspects of research, researchers are also engaged in fundamental questioning as well as the issues of our society (pathology of language, disappearance of languages, the origins of language, automatic processing of spoken language etc.). Finally, at an internal level, researchers and research-lecturers, through continued presence, provide great support and guidance for PhD students.
