We are pleased to announce the 2013 International Conference on English Linguistics, to be held from July 3 to July 6, 2013, at Korea University in Seoul, Korea. The conference will be organized by the ELSOK (English Linguistic Society of Korea) founded for the advancement of the scientific study of the English language and linguistic theory. (This international conference also plans to have a special session in memory of the late Prof. Sung Shik Choue, reflecting his linguistic theories and contributions to the study of English linguistics in Korea.) On July 3, there will be a pre-conference workshop on corpus linguistics by Mark Davies (Brigham Young University). See the information below. 

Confirmed Invited Speakers: 

Arto Antilla (Stanford University)
Winnie Cheng (The Hong Kong Polytech University)
Mark Davies (Brigham Young University)
Lynne Flowerdew (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology)
Benedikt Szmrecsanyi (Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies)

Workshop on ‘Using Online Corpora to Examine Variation and Change in English’
Workshop Leader: Mark Davies (Brigham Young University)

In this workshop, we will provide extensive hands-on experience in using the following corpora, all of which are freely available from http://corpus.byu.edu/:

- Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA); 450 million words, 1990-2012
- Corpus of Historical American English (COHA); 400 million words, 1810-2009
- BYU-BNC; our interface to the 100 million word British National Corpus
- Corpus of Web-based Global English (to be released in May 2013); 2 billion words from 20 different countries
- BYU/Advanced Google Books; 155 billion words, 1500s-2000s

The linguistic phenomena that we will consider cover a wide range of lexical, syntactic, morphological, and semantic issues, involving the following types of variation and change:

- Recent changes in American English (COCA)
- Changes over the past 200 years (COHA and Google Books)
- Dialectal variation in English (COCA/BNC and Web-Based Global English)
- Genre-based variation (mostly COCA)

We will also consider how these corpora can be used for teaching and learning, including the student-oriented, COCA-based http://www.WordAndPhrase.info. Finally, we will consider how a great deal of COCA-derived data can be used offline, such as the information from http://www.wordfrequency.info and http://www.ngrams.info.
