Description
Center for General and Comparative Linguistics (CGCL) is a research unit at the University of Wrocław, Poland. Working mostly within the generative paradigm, we try to better understand the factors underlying both the variation and the similarities observed across human languages. We are also interested in studying the mechanisms of language perception and production through research conducted in our psycholinguistic laboratory (equiped with an EEG machine). CGCL is officially accepted as a publishing house by the National Library of Poland. Our publishing projects include: - Questions and Answers in Linguistics: a free online peer-reviewed journal focusing on particularly problematic issues in linguistic research from a theoretical as well as empirical perspective - Generative Linguistics in Wroclaw: a linguistics series devoted to the presentation of Polish research in the field of generative linguistics - Conference proceedings
