We will be running a one-day workshop in Corpus Linguistics on February 3rd 2012 for all postgraduate students, researchers and staff who are interested. The event is free but spaces are limited. You will be required to register for each event to secure a place and you can do this using this link.
AntConc and CorpusTool are both available for free and while they do very different things, they complement each other very nicely.
10.30 - 12.30: Introduction to AntConc
Emma Moreton (Coventry) and Lise Fontaine (Cardiff)
room 2.03 (Humanities Building)
14.00 - 17.00: the UAM CorpusTool
Geoff Thompson (Liverpool) and Lise Fontaine (Cardiff)
Training Room 2 (Julian Hodge Building)
Contact me, if you have any questions.
I've just finished writing the exam scripts for Describing Language (all about Systemic Functional Linguistics) and Words and Meaning (all about, well, words and meaning). I'm quite pleased with the questions - they seem very reasonable and fair while still being intellectually stimulating! Hopefully students will agree AFTER they sit the papers.
