Language Corpus: Essential tool for research and teaching

A corpus is a representative collection of texts from a language that can be used to research how people speak and what they say about different things. Consulting a corpus is essential for any research activity that works with language data or relies on understanding of participants’ responses. 

This workshop will introduce you to the concept of language corpora, how to decide which one to use, how to search it and how to interpret the results. You will have a chance to try a hands on search and you are welcome to bring your own research problems and see how using a corpus can make you more effective.
