The research topics of our permanent teaching staff include Portuguese syntax and the history of the Portuguese language.

At the beginning of the 20th century, research in Ibero-Romance languages focused mostly on the history of language. This emphasis on historical linguistics continues today, though it is now accompanied by research into the syntax and language contacts of contemporary languages, dictionary projects etc.
