Description
The Research Centre for Multilingual Practices and Language Learning in Society (MULTIPLES) is concerned with the study of language use and communication as aspects of social life. It engages with the applied dimensions of this field, broadly defined,and does so with particular reference to contexts and processes of language learning, language use in institutional contexts and multilingualism. The research group hosts researchers with backgrounds in various linguistic disciplines, including sociolinguistics, language acquisition (first, second and foreign language), language teaching and learning, language in education, discourse analysis, linguistic anthropology, and translation and interpreting studies.
