Lancaster Summer Schools
in Corpus Linguistics and other Digital methods

Lancaster University, UK – 12th to 15th July 2016


Corpus linguistics for Language studies

Corpus Linguistics for Language Studies is aimed at students studying Linguistics or Language studies, who want to develop skills in corpus methods. Sponsored by UCREL at Lancaster University – one of the world's leading and longest-established centres for corpus-based research – this summer school is the sixth event in a highly successful series that began in 2011.

The programme consists of a series of intensive two-hour sessions, some involving practical work, others being more discussion-oriented. The topics include, for example:

  • Advanced corpus queries and the use of regular expressions.
  • Applying corpus methods in forensic linguistics.
  • Understanding statistics for corpus analysis

N.B.: This Summer School event is free to attend, but registration in advance is compulsory, as places are limited.
