This seminar serves as an introduction to foundational concepts and applications of Corpus Linguistics. We will cover the theoretical underpinnings of Corpus Linguistics; some hands-on practical skills for searching corpora (regular expressions and CEQL/CQP syntax) as well as corpus compilation, and some basic statistical notions along with their application through cooccurrence-based methods (collocations and keywords). We will also explore how this knowledge can be applied to other domains of linguistics, e.g., Discourse Analysis.
The seminar will be held in English, a command of German is not required (nevertheless, students are welcome to work on German corpora for term projects). Participants are not expected to have experience in statistics and/ or computational tools, as relevant skills in these domains will be covered in the seminar.
A list of literature recommendations will be provided during the seminar.
