I'm delighted to announce the latest publication in the series Elements in Corpus Linguistics, published by Cambridge University Press.
The author of this Element is Jonathan Dunn and the title is Natural Language Processing for Corpus Linguistics.
The publication is available on-line and is FREE OF CHARGE for 2 weeks from 4 March 2022.
The URL is https://www.cambridge.org/core/elements/abs/natural-language-processing-for-corpus-linguistics/1063EED446D505D33E0FAB43BDA98DF5
Here is the abstract:
Corpus analysis can be expanded and scaled up by incorporating computational methods from natural language processing. This Element shows how text classification and text similarity models can extend our ability to undertake corpus linguistics across very large corpora. These computational methods are becoming increasingly important as corpora grow too large for more traditional types of linguistic analysis. We draw on five case studies to show how and why to use computational methods, ranging from usage-based grammar to authorship analysis to using social media for corpus-based sociolinguistics. Each section is accompanied by an interactive code notebook that shows how to implement the analysis in Python. A stand-alone Python package is also available to help readers use these methods with their own data. Because large-scale analysis introduces new ethical problems, this Element pairs each new methodology with a discussion of potential ethical implications.
Best wishes from
Susan Hunston (series editor)
