Scholars of the French language and culture conduct primarily linguistic and literary research.
The main focus areas of the research include textual analysis and discourse studies, contrastive linguistics, translation and interpretation studies, stylistics, as well as the study of the spoken language, interaction and prosody. Research topics include both written and spoken language, not forgetting the language of the Internet. Literary studies are focused on French literature in the 20th and 21st century. In recent years, teaching French as a foreign language has also become a popular field of research.
