Through the formal analysis of the traditional items of language – word, phrase, the utterance or the discourse – and the study of a wide range of different languages, the researchers at the Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle (LLF) investigate the cognitive system of the language in its entirety.

Enlightened and eager for collaborations, the LLF is member of the Labex EFL – Empirical Foundations of Linguistics (2011-2021), and is involved in many collaborations, either on a local or international scope.
