GLiF (for "Grup de Lingüística Formal" in Catalan) is the research group for formal linguistics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. It is recognized and funded by the Catalan government as a Consolidated Research Group ("Grup Consolidat"). GLiF together with the Computational Linguistics Group (GLiCom), the Prosodic Studies Group (GrEP), and the ALLENCAM group, devoted to multilingual language learning and acquisition, comprise UPF's Linguistics Research Unit (UR-Ling).

The members of GLiF work on the formal description of the architecture of human language and the interactions between different modules —phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics— based on data from a number of languages, primarily from the Romance, Germanic and Slavic families, and from signed languages. You can find out more about our specific areas of research by looking at our projects page and at the individual pages of our group members. Check out our activities page to find out about our regular seminars and other events.

We welcome graduate students, postdocs and visiting researchers. Please contact one of the senior researchers in the group if you are interested in joining us.
