Our Vision & Mission

The Centre aims to apply our knowledge about how language works to achieving a better understanding of other phenomena in the human experience in order to:

  • Advance our knowledge of how language works to construe our experience and enact social relationships;
  • Apply linguistic insight in such areas as education, and computer processing of language, i.e. practicing appliable linguistics.

We are committed to doing apply-able linguistic research, including corpus linguistics, discourse studies, visual analytics for texts, language learning, linguistic studies of Chinese and other minority languages, and translation.
