FUNCAP UCM research group (Functional Linguistics English-Spanish and its Applications)

We are a consolidated research group at UCM, awarded the distinction of EXCELLENCY by the Spanish Research Agency (Agencia Estatal de Investigación, AEI) in December 2018, and we are part of the Research Cluster for the Humanities of the Moncloa International Excellency Campus (
Our research is focused on the study of the English Language, in contrast with Spanish and other languages from a functional-cognitive perspective. Our theoretical underpinnings are the systemic-functional model and other functional-cognitive theories such as construction grammar and functional-discourse grammar.
We use an empirical methodology based on the analysis and annotation of corpora (both parallel and comparable) in English and Spanish. Our most recent projects focus on the compilation and annotation of bilingual corpora for linguistic, computational and didactic purposes.

Our work is applied in the following fields:

- Corpus-based contrastive and translation studies

- English Language learning in contrast with Spanish

- Natural Language Processing and Language Technologies, specially those derived from corpus annotation

- Semiotics and Multimodality
Research lines / projects proposed

- Corpus-based Contrastive Linguistics and Translation

- NLP and Language Technologies applied to translation

- English language teaching and learning

- Semiotics and multimodality
