CLLEAR promotes the excellence of research in areas of Linguistics and Applied Linguistics. Our members’ research is concerned with cognitive and socio-cultural aspects of language, language use, and language education.

Welcome to CLLEAR. We are a group of researchers and PhD students whose research falls under the umbrella of general and applied linguistics. Currently, we focus on the following areas: second language acquisition; language learning and teaching; language assessment; linguistic theory; discourse analysis and sociolinguistics; language attrition; heritage languages; and third language acquisition. With a great deal of work taking place within a variety of areas, CLLEAR aims to provide a forum for knowledge production and knowledge-sharing and discussion across these areas.
