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?

Workshop "Research technology and software"

The workshop "Research technology and software" (15-16 July 2016) is part of the module “The why and how: Methods in Applied Linguistics” for 1st year Master students of Applied Linguistics. Due to the small group of students we can offer ten additional slots to other MA and 3rd year BA students with an avid interest in linguistics.

Outreach: project week with secondary school students

For one of our annual outreach activities, we had a group of 10 secondary school students from the CJD Königswinter over to spend a week with us. They gained some insight into the field of pragmatics and carried out their own empirical studies. The week finished off with them presenting their results - we are truly impressed with their projects!

BAEL is delighted to host the GAL Research School for Methods in Empirical Pragmatics (MeEP) in September, featuring talks and workshops by Anne Barron, Michael Haugh, John Kirk and Miriam Locher.   Information on the MeEP
