Senior Research Associate on AHRC-funded project: Encyclopaedia of Shakespeare's Language (3 years full-time from 1st May 2016; Lancaster University, UK)

The main objective of the Encyclopaedia of Shakespeare's Language project is to deploy state-of-the art corpus-based methods to produce a two-volume encyclopaedia of Shakespeare's language. One volume will focus on words, the other on patterns of words (e.g. idiolects of characters, dialects of character types and themes of particular plays or groups of plays). A particular feature of the work is that it is comparative: 321 million words of EEBO-TCP language data will be used for comparisons with Shakespeare. The key role of the holder of this post will be apply their expertise in the analysis of early modern English and the use of corpus-based methods to generate encyclopaedia entries.
