The Linguistics Research Centre of NOVA University Lisbon (CLUNL) is a research unit that aims at promoting research in theoretical and applied Linguistics, to develop the advanced training of researchers and the promotion of the dissemination of scientific data on those domains concerned with the nature and structure of languages and texts.

The work developed at CLUNL since its creation, in 2000, has made a relevant and distinctive contribution to the study of Linguistics in Portugal, in areas such as language acquisition (native language and non-native language), discourse analysis, lexicology and lexicography, text theory and terminology, while developing research in domains such as lexicon and vocabulary (general and specialized), historical linguistics, morphology, syntax, and semantics.
