Subject: Corpus Linguistics - MPhil in Birmingham

Dear colleagues,

I've been recently appointed to the new Chair of Corpus Linguistics at 
Birmingham University. Ever since John Sinclair laid the foundations of 
corpus-driven lexicography in COBUILD, the joint venture between 
HarperCollins and Birmingham University, there has been an internationally 
renowned corpus research group, which introduced modules of corpus 
linguistics in postgraduate training, many years ago.

Now that corpus linguistics has come of age, it is time for a broader 
programme. Please find attached the announcement of our new one-year MPhil 
degree programme in corpus linguistics. As it is closely linked to our 
research agenda, our postgraduate students will be invited to align their 
research with our projects, many of which have a cross-linguistic perspective.
This is why we think this course is well suited both to students from 
overseas and to British students interested in multilingual work.

Our MPhil in Corpus Linguistics acts well as research training preparation 
for a PhD at Birmingham or elsewhere.

I would like to ask you to display the announcement of the programme at a 
suitable place (the Word file can be downloaded at ).

Alternatively you can find this information at ). Perhaps you 
could also mention this course to students interested in corpus linguistics. 

As a general rule, applications are submitted in March and April.

All the best,

Wolfgang Teubert
