LiFE - Formal and Experimental Linguistics

The group has been aiming at:

  • (i) promoting research on leading theoretical issues and conducting analysis of specific linguistic aspects, which may lead to a better understanding of the processes of acquisition, development, variation and change;
  • (ii) developing comparative, synchronic and diachronic studies on Portuguese and other languages, based on the generative framework;
  • (iii) forming young researchers, through the integration of students in the groups research program, the offer of post-graduation courses (Master and PhD), and hosting national and foreign post-doc researchers.
