Course information

We aim to equip you with skills that will enable you to analyse large amounts of linguistic data (corpora) using cutting-edge computational technology. You will also learn about the structure of the English language and a wide variety of applications of corpus linguistic methods for the analysis of English and other languages. This includes discourse analysis (newspapers, business reports, social media etc.), sociolinguistic analysis of spoken language as well as pedagogical applications of corpora (Data Driven Learning, English for Academic Purposes, teaching materials development etc.).
