FYI: Survey on Corpus Usage

Author: Verena Lyding

Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics

FYI Body: Dear linguists and corpus users,

You are invited to participate in a Survey on Corpus Usage.

It investigates what working practices and analysis approaches are followed by corpus linguists in their research, with the aim to contribute to the explication of users' requirements concerning tools for corpus analysis.

The results will be used in the context of my PhD project to direct new perspectives for the development of tools for linguistic corpus analysis that closely respond to the users' working realities.

The survey is targeted to researchers doing linguistic analyses based on corpora.

Your valuable contribution of practical working experiences and views is very much appreciated. Please feel invited to forward this message to interested colleagues.
