Led by Adam Kilgarriff and Michael Rundell of the Lexicography MasterClass, this is an intensive five-day workshop, with seminars on theoretical issues alternating with practical sessions at the computer. There will be some parallel 'lexicographic' and 'computational' sessions. Topics to be covered include: * corpus creation * corpus analysis:

o software and corpus querying
