Mission & Vision

At BAEL, we focus on language use in social contexts and the underlying cognitive processes involved. We work with naturally occurring text and talk as well as with experimental data.

Furthermore, we believe that students must be involved in this work and empowered to do research right from the start. After all, what is research but learning, that is, finding out about life?
