Our Corpus Linguistics Summer School aims to equip participants with critical expertise in both theory and practice of corpus-based linguistic research. Over the course of five days, participants will be actively involved in two kinds of sessions. First, hands-on sessions will put the emphasis on the learning of practical skills for the purpose of extracting, annotating, and analysing corpus data of various kinds, and the application of this knowledge to specific research projects. Second, participants will also learn about current corpus-based research.
Topics of sessions will include (non-exhaustively):
– Corpus tools and specialized software
– Annotation and processing of corpus data
– Statistics in corpus linguistics
– Data exploration
– Social media and Big Data
– Pattern Grammar and applied corpus linguistics
– Digital humanities and the study of literature
– Sign language corpora
Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics
