The Corpus and LAnguage Variation In English Research Group (CLAVIER) is a Research Centre recently founded by the Universities of  Bari, Bergamo, Firenze, Milano, Modena and Reggio Emilia, Roma "La Sapienza", Siena and Trieste, and currently based in Modena.

The shared methodological framework combines two complementary strands of linguistic investigation - corpus analysis and discourse analysis - to research on language variation in English, both in quantitative and qualitative terms.

Thus, one of the main aims of CLAVIER is to contribute to an integration of quantitative and qualitative methods in research on language variation in terms of diachronic, geographic and socio-cultural dimensions through the methodological tools offered by corpora.

Particular attention is also given to the analysis of different genres and methodological registers.
