    Corpus Linguistics in the South 8: Voices from Below - Corpus Linguistics and Social Media

    University of Reading

    The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who adopt the tools and approaches of Corpus Linguistics to study communication in online environments especially social media sites and interactive online and comment forums. We invite papers that:

    • look at the interplay of public/hegemonic and private/grassroots discourse in social media and online forums that feature voices of ‘ordinary people’
    • deal with methodological questions of mining and annotating data from online and social media platforms
    • present case studies based on corpora of social media and online interactive communication
    • discuss specific linguistic features, practices and phenomena of social media and online interactive communication
