The international associated laboratory (LIA: ‘Laboratoire International Associé’)

“The Grammar of the Verbal Domain in Romanian and Beyond”


            The international associated laboratory “Grammar of the Verbal Domain in Romanian and Beyond (RoGraV)” is a large-scale collaborative research project based on an agreement between the following French and Romanian institutions:

            (i) Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, France) represented by three laboratories (Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle, Structures formelles du langage andLaboratoire de Linguistique de Nantes),

            (ii) The Romanian Academy, represented by the “Iorgu Iordan - Alexandru Rosetti” Institute of Linguistics,

            (iii) The University of Bucharest, represented by the Faculty of Letters and the Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures

            (iv) The University “Paris Diderot – Paris 7”,

            (v) The University “Paris 8 Vincennes – Saint-Denis”, and

            (vi) The University of Nantes.

            The agreement has been signed in 2017 for a period of 4 years (2017–2020).

            The central goal of this project is to achieve a systematic description of the Verb Phrase and of the sentence in Romanian while at the same time comparing Romanian with the other Romance languages. This large scale empirical research will complete the elaboration of the Reference Grammar of Romanian (the first volume of which, on the Noun Phrase, has been published in 2013 by John Benjamins, see Based on the most recent results in formal linguistics, this type of grammar is not itself a formal grammar, but is instead meant for a large audience of students, teachers of grammar or of foreign languages and researchers in descriptive and theoretical linguistics. This grammar aims at a systematic fine-grained description of the whole grammatical system of Romanian. While working on the various chapters of the Grammar the authors will also expoit the theoretical consequences of the fine-grained empirical description in research articles published in international journals or thematic volumes.
