Welcome to the Labex EFL website

Linguistics and related disciplines addressing language have achieved much progress in the last two decades, but improved interdisciplinary communication and interaction can significantly boost this positive trend.

The present project opens new perspectives by adopting an integrative approach. It groups together some of leading French research teams in theoretical and applied linguistics, in computational linguistics, and in psycholinguistics.

Through collaborations with prestigious multidisciplinary institutions (CSLI, MIT, Max Planck Institute, SOAS...) the project aims at contributing to the creation of a Paris School of Linguistics, a novel and innovative interdisciplinary site where dialogue among the language sciences can be fostered, with a special focus on empirical foundations and experimental methods and a valuable expertise on technology transfer and applications.

The Labex EFL offers mobility grants for a period of 3 months each to PhD students in linguistics and related fields. Deadline for applications : January 15th, 2017. More details here !
