Public talk, Michael Barlow Social and Cognitive Approaches in Corpus Linguistics Tuesday 28th July, 18.00 -----------------------------------
Michael Barlow, Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Language Studies and Linguistics at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, will be giving the following public talk at Aston University on Tuesday 28th July, 18.00 in room MB550
Social and Cognitive Approaches in Corpus Linguistics
'In this talk I examine different linguistic traditions, broadly American and British, and explore how these traditions impinge on approaches to corpus data and to the theoretical consequences of corpus analysis. With this background in mind, I consider the cognitive and social dimensions of research in corpus linguistics and examine a number of issues related to the interpretation of corpus data, including differences inherent in comprehension versus production and idiolects versus social groupings.'
