    Workshop on Corpus Linguistics

    This free one-day workshop, arranged jointly by Lancaster’s CASS research centre and the School of Languages of the University of Ghana, consists of a series of introductory lectures and practical sessions on topics in corpus linguistics and the use of corpus techniques in applied linguistic analysis.

    We welcome everyone who wants to learn more about this versatile methodology for language analysis; no specialised knowledge about language corpora is required, but basic familiarity with computers is assumed. The workshop focuses on analysis techniques and tools which participants will be able to apply to their own texts and corpora.

    The workshop will be taught by Andrew Hardie, Dana Gablasova, and Mark McGlashan (Lancaster University).

    • Introduction to corpus linguistics
    • Corpora and language learning
    • Corpora and discourse
