Following the success of the two previous Corpus Linguistics Summer Schools in 2016 and 2017, we are pleased to announce the third edition of this event, to take place at the University of Birmingham from 25 to 29 June 2018.
Our Corpus Linguistics 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 two kinds of sessions. First, hands-on sessions will put the emphasis on the learning of practical skills for the purpose of extracting, annotating, and analysing corpus data of various kinds, and the application of this knowledge to specific research projects. Second, participants will also learn about current corpus-based research.
– Corpus tools and specialized software
