CERLIS (Research Centre on Languages for Specific Purposes) was founded in 1999 to promote research in the area of languages for specific purposes both on a synchronic and a diachronic level. The Centre aims:
  • to promote, sustain and coordinate research

  • to promote the exchange of research documents, information and material both on a national and international level

  • to stimulate the dissemination of research results through meetings, conferences, seminars and specialized publications

  • to promote the creation of material for the teaching of specialized discourse.

CERLIS members are involved in national and international research projects on the following topics: academic discourse, scientific discourse, legal discourse, political discourse, economic discourse, the language of tourism. CERLIS has organized Conferences on "Modality in Specialized Texts" (2000); "Conflict and Negotiation in Specialized Texts" (2001); "New Trends in Specialized Discourse" (2005); "Trading Identities" (2008).
