The CLAN project describes the cognitive representation of landscapes in speakers who live in intercultural contexts, and their subsequent emotional responses via spoken language. The project describes the reaction of speakers of English as a second or foreign language to the perception of natural landscapes with the parameters of landscape ecology. The objective of the project is to sketch out an atlas of linguistic features that represents the different emotions manifested by landscape preferences on the basis of cultural self-identifications.

The project has been funded by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, by the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (FFI2009-08395) for the period 2010-2012; and by the Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (FFI2012-30839) for the period 2013-2015.
