    Summary
    Climate change has in recent years moved from being mainly a physical phenomenon to being simultaneously a social, cultural and political phenomenon. At present, both individual and collective attitudes and behaviour seem an equally serious challenge in the climate issue as scientific knowledge of the phenomenon itself, and in this, language and communication are crucial. Language not only reflects and expresses, but also influences attitudes and behaviour, and thus constitutes a vital component of the cultural prerequisites underlying societal development. The overarching question of LINGCLIM is to what extent and in what way language matters in climate change interpretations.

    The primary objectives are to
    (1) generate new and integrated knowledge about the role of language in climate discourse through developing an innovative multidisciplinary methodology including an opinion survey and a psychological experiment in addition to comprehensive linguistic and discursive analyses;
    (2) investigate climate discourse in a micro-analysis focusing on specific linguistic features, and in a macro-analysis based on contextual factors established through the multidisciplinary approach;
    (3) explore the role of the perspectives of ”gloom-and-doom” vs. ”opportunities-in-a new-sustainable-society”.

    We investigate to what extent instances of climate discourse may be described through a narrative structure with up to five components and a number of potential actors (victims, villains, heroes).
    Three major challenges to be handled are to
    (1) identify relevant contextual factors to be integrated in the analysis to understand the role of the components and actors in the narrative structure;
    (2) identify explicit and hidden voices in climate discourse as well as identify what actors they represent;
    (3) unveil the relationship between linguistic representations and psychological factors such as people’s attitudes, beliefs and responses to climate change.
