Registration is open: Corpus Linguistics Summer School in Birmingham, UK, 17-21 July 2017


Registration for the Birmingham Corpus Linguistics Summer School is open.

Our 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 both hands-on sessions, which will put the emphasis on practical skills for extracting, annotating, and analysing corpus data, and research sessions, in which participants will learn about current corpus-based research from our local staff of corpus linguists. It is open to undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral students, as well as researchers who wish to improve their skills to apply corpus methods in their own research.

Invited speakers: - Natalia Levshina (University of Leipzig): “Semantics in the time of corpora: data exploration and visualization” - Mike Scott (Aston University): “Introduction to WordSmith Tools”

Topics of sessions will broadly include: - Standard corpus tools and specialized software - Collocations, patterns and networks - Statistics in corpus linguistics - Exploratory data analysis and data visualization - Annotation of corpus data (manual and automatic) - Social media and Big Data
