Laboratoire de Lingustique de Nantes

The LLING, Laboratoire de LINGuistique de Nantes (Nantes Linguistics Laboratory), is a CNRS/University of Nantes Joint Research Unit (UMR 6310) dedicated to defining the human capacity known as “language”, i.e. modelling the representations and mechanisms involved in the production, understanding and perception of language.

Its work combines an explicit theoretical framework with a strong and varied empirical basis. The aim is to shed light on problems in formal linguistics based on new data from different complementary methodologies (field linguistics, experimental linguistics and corpora).
