Linguistic research at the University of Cologne

CRC "Prominence in Language"

Welcome to "Prominence in Language"

In this Collaborative Research Centre (CRC 1252) more than sixty researchers are working together in an interdisciplinary team with the goal of providing a comprehensive characterization of prominence in language.

We investigate how prominence structures language with respect to prosody (Area A), morphosyntax and semantics (Area B) as well as text and discourse structure (Area C) in a large variety of languages from more than a dozen major language families and linguistic areas world wide. Our research on prominence contributes to a better understanding of language as a system between communication and cognition.
