Research Group / LINDES

Descriptive linguistics prioritises the description of a particular language rather than the devising of theoretical models of languages in general (Widdowson 1996). LINDES Research Group is committed to the systematic description of English language in a variety of ways, including contrastive approaches. All members and collaborators of LINDES share the common endeavour to carry out linguistic descriptions based on attested data through empirical observation of regular patterns in natural language from a variety of perspectives and methodologies, including quantitative, qualitative and mixed-methods analyses.

LINDES Research Group is based at the Department of English Philology of the University of Salamanca (Spain) and collaborates actively with members of other universities in Spain and abroad, as well as with linguists and language teachers from other institutions for conjoint projects along these research lines:

  • discourse analysis, critical discourse analysis
  • multimodal analysis
  • corpus linguistics, corpus-assisted analysis
  • systemic functional linguistics, systemic functional grammar
  • cultural linguistics, language and culture
  • cognitive linguistics
  • contrastive linguistics
  • linguistic landscapes
  • sociolinguistics
  • linguistic variation
  • descriptive linguistics applied to social contexts
  • descriptive linguistics applied to educational contexts
  • descriptive linguistics applied to professional and specialized contexts
