Mission & Vision

At BAEL, we focus on language use in social contexts and the underlying cognitive processes involved. We work with naturally occurring text and talk as well as with experimental data.

Furthermore, we believe that students must be involved in this work and empowered to do research right from the start. After all, what is research but learning, that is, finding out about life?

Information on the programme

New corpus: LINDSEI

We have a new corpus at the RCEP: The Louvain International Database of Spoken English Interlanguage (LINDSEI). It consists of more than one million spoken words based on informal interviews with advanced learners of English from eleven different language backgrounds. Searchable variables include number of years of English at school and time spent in an English-speaking country. For a bibliography of studies using the LINDSEI, click here.
