Опис курсу

Advances in computer technology have revolutionized the ways linguists can approach their data. By using computers, we can access large bodies of text (corpora) and search for the phenomena in which we are interested. In this way, we can uncover complexities in naturallyoccurring data and explore issues related to frequency of usage. In this course, the following questions will be investigated: What is a corpus? What corpora exist? How are corpora developed? Can we use corpora for a more objective view of language than that of introspection, intuition and anecdotes? Can corpora replace or complement the researcher’s intuition? Can corpora suggest curiosities which may be motivating for both researchers and learners? Can we transform the study of language from an environment which has been “evidence scarce” to one which is “evidence abundant”? By discussing the questions above, we will also learn about XML; concordancers; how one searches for specific phenomena in corpora; why we need annotation and what kind of annotation is available; what programs do annotation automatically; what tools can help us search in linguistically annotated corpora; what we can do with quantitative data that corpora provide.
