About

The life of a group of linguistic, sociolinguistic and anthropological researchers at Ghent University.

Language in society

Language learning

MULTIPLES is a research group concerned with the study of language and discourse as aspects of social life. It engages with the applied and educational dimensions of this field and does so with particular reference to contemporary multilingualism. We connect researchers with backgrounds in various linguistic disciplines, including Sociolinguistics, Language Acquisition (first, second and foreign), Language Teaching and Learning, Language in Education, Discourse Analysis, Linguistic Anthropology, Translation and Interpreting studies.

MULTIPLES fosters collaboration across both clusters and invites the sharing of ideas and methodologies to create productive and effective academic partnerships.
