Founded in 2008, the Centre for Language and Linguistic Studies (CLLS) aims to promote interdisciplinary collaboration in linguistic research and teaching. Membership embraces not just the members of English Language & Linguistics but also other members from the School of European Culture and Languages with an interest in the study of language, as well as researchers in philosophy, computing, psychology and anthropology, reflecting the many and varied routes by which individuals come to a love of language and an interest in the various disciplines and sub-disciplines of linguistics. Contributions from researchers in all areas of linguistic enquiry are welcome.
