Leiden University Centre for Linguistics
Research at the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL) focuses on linguistic variation and diversity.
In order to create more awareness and scientific understanding of this topic, research activities are clustered around three (overlapping) umbrella programmes:
(research focused on theoretical and experimental linguistics)
(the study of past and present language use from a variety of theoretical perspectives)
(descriptive linguists and comparative philological linguists studying specific language families)
