Our team member, Dariusz Kozbial, took part in the Corpus Linguistics Summer School. The summer school was held in Birmingham between 17th – 21 July – its goal was to let undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students learn more about corpus methods and their applications in research. The sessions covered topics such as:

  • standard corpus tools and specialized software
  • collocations, patterns and networks
  • statistics in corpus linguistics
  • exploratory data analysis and data visualization
  • annotation of corpus data (manual and automatic)
  • social media and Big Data
