Tübingen Center for Linguistics (TüZLi)

Language | Culture | Cognition

The Tübingen Center for Linguistics (TüZLi) provides a platform for focusing the diverse research activities of Tübingen linguistics. Further, it offers an organizational framework for the interdisciplinary development of the intra- and inter-faculty cooperation between linguistics, cultural science, and cognitive- and neuroscience at the University of Tübingen. The guiding principle is the development of an integrative perspective of language as a natural and cultural phenomenon – a perspective that combines linguistic investigations into structure, interpretation, development and processing of language with cognitive scientific views on the biological foundations of language, as well as cultural scientific views on the cultural forms of human language. It is the goal of the Center to build bridges between the humanities and the natural sciences on the topic of language.
