Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics 

Meeting Description: 

A 30-hours hands-on introduction to quantitative corpus linguistics for both graduate students and seasoned researchers. Using the open source software and programming language R, we will learn:

- How to generate frequency lists and search for words and patterns;
- How to process corpora and perform corpus-linguistic searches in ways that typical corpus software does not support;
- How to write small functions for recurrent corpus-linguistic tasks.

Data to be dealt with include plain text corpora, corpora with SGML or XML annotation, ICE-GB files, and others. The participants will also get small functions and scripts they can use for their own corpus-linguistic tasks (concordancing, generating n-grams of words or characters, and others).
