#LancsBox: A new corpus tool for researchers, students and teachers

Vaclav Brezina & Matt Timperley

CASS, Lancaster University

In this practical UCREL CRS session, we introduce #LancsBox v. 3 (just released), a software package for the analysis and visualisation of language data and corpora, which was developed at Lancaster University. #LancsBox can be used by linguists, language teachers, translators, historians, sociologists, educators and anyone interested in quantitative language analysis. It is free to use for non-commercial purposes and works with any major operating system. In this workshop, we introduce the main functionalities of #LancsBox, including tagging and searching corpora, building collocation graphs and visualising keywords.The workshop will take place in a computer lab, but please feel free to bring your own laptop.
