Current Research Projects

Discourse Particles and Cognition

This research project investigates, from an experimental pragmatics perspective, how discourse particles as process-controlling items interact with contextual factors to condition the interpretation of utterances. The project was expanded to include the analysis of further processes implicated in the construction of discourse, such as phenomena related to the connectedness of discourse (CONICYT Project) or discourse relations in various textual modalities, specifically in multimodal texts.

Public discourse on the pandemic in Latin America. Awareness, understanding, and social attitudes – A case study on Argentina:

The goal of this cooperative project is to analyze the socio-communicative dynamics of discourse on the COVID-19 pandemic in educational contexts in Argentina. In order to understand the discursive construction of social representations, both, the discourses on education produced by the media as well as the discourses of the educational institutions themselves and their political representatives are being studies.

El español en Europa

Project Leads: Prof. Dr. Francisco Moreno-Fernández, Prof. Dr. Óscar Loureda, Prof. Dr. Johannes Kabatek (University of Zurich).
