Module overview

In this module, we introduce corpus linguistics as an approach to and method for analysing large-scale text data. We will develop an understanding of building and curating datasets, annotating data, and using quantitative and statistical measures for language analysis. We will explore the uses, advantages and disadvantages of applying corpus methods in research. As we move through the module, we will experience each step of the process of doing research with large-scale linguistic data, considering the choices we make in research and how we can justify them in light of our aims.
