Short note on organisation background
The Sociolinguistics Cluster’s purpose is to generate and manage sociolinguistic knowledge in order to respond better to the challenges and needs of the Basque language revitalisation process. Its aim is to apply and enhance the sociolinguistic resources and capacities offered by our members, public institutions, social stakeholders, scientists and other agents. We therefore carry out collaborative research, development, innovation and knowledge management projects, working to build bridges between theoretical and applied knowledge.
Scientific rigour: We work autonomously and always in strict adherence to the principles of scientific rigour.
Collaboration: Complementarity and teamwork form the basis of our activities, as we strive to foster synergies and enhance the added value of all our projects and initiatives. We therefore prioritise collaborative projects carried out within the open innovation framework.
Commitment to society: Our fundamental purpose is to help provide an effective response to the challenges posed by the Basque language revival process. We therefore disseminate the results of projects carried out in collaboration with different stakeholders among Basque society, always in accordance with the principles of transparency.
Our research lines are the following:
- Dynamic sociolinguistics for languages in contact.
- Social dimensions of language use.
- Processes of change in linguistic behaviour.
- Social transmission of languages.
- Linguistic discourses, values and attitudes.
Soziolinguistika Klusterra has an elected representative in NPLD’s Steering Committee.
