We are an international team of linguists with a special interest in Romance and American languages and cultures.

We research and publish on topics including linguistic variability, language contact and multilingualism, syntax and pragmatics of interrogative sentences, intonation and information structure, as well as the preservation of indigenous languages and other topics concerning linguistic and cultural diversity and sustainability.

We offer courses for Romance languages and cross-linguistic courses on diverse linguistic and interdisciplinary topics, about which you can inform yourself on the individual faculty pages if you are interested. We also focus on the implementation of international courses using and further developing digital methods.
