Aim: to give knowledge, skill and confidence to language professionals
who are coming to grips with corpora. Corpus work is fast becoming 
an everyday activity in both the commercial and academic sectors of 
language study, and still only a small proportion of those who are 
getting involved with corpora have had even the most basic introduction 
to the management and use of corpus resources. This course features the 
particular needs and resources of multilingual corpus work, but not

TWC courses are intensive and last for one week, ranging from language
 policy matters to linguistic theory and description, featuring hands-on 
experience, detailed exemplification and practical technical review. 

Suitable for:

workers in the language industries
researchers and scholars of language
computational linguists
language teachers.

[The course is supported by a small grant from the EC-TELRI-II project 
which enables the fees to be kept low; TWC regrets that no grants or 
scholarships are available for this course]
