The research program of SFB 441 has covered three related areas: Some of the projects have focussed on methodological issues, another group of projects has been concerned with certain linguistic phenomena, and a third part of SFB 441 provided a link between the first two areas. The SFB has worked from a number of perspectives, chiefly theoretical linguistic, descriptive linguistic and computational linguistic approaches. Corresponding to the three areas, the subprojects of SFB 441 are divided into project groups A, B and C.
