Understanding linguistic complexity in political discourse


The EURLING project is a multidisciplinary task force consisting of renowned scholars from within the fields
of linguistics, rhetorics, history and political science. The project's main challenge will be to understand the
relation between, on the one hand, attested verbal utterances produced by politicians in debates on the
European integration and, on the other hand, the rhetorical and historical-political circumstances in which
these utterances appear.
