The University of Southampton
Centre for Linguistics, Language Education and Acquisition Research

CLLEAR is the main focus for research and advanced teaching in applied linguistics at the University of Southampton.  


Welcome to CLLEAR! We are a group of researchers and PhD students whose research falls under the large umbrella of applied and general linguistics. Currently, we focus on three main areas:

Language Learning and Teaching
Linguistic Theory
Second Language Acquisition

Whilst a lot of work is happening within these three sub-groups, CLLEAR aims to provide a forum for knowledge-sharing and discussion across these sections.
