Meeting Description:

This is a normal TWC four-day intensive course on the design and construction of
spoken corpora, and written and virtual corpus design and management.
Statistical methods for the analysis of corpus frequency data and their
implications for corpus design are explained and discussed. The course is
relevant for anyone using a corpus in their research or their job.

The venue is an ancient ex-monastery near Siena, and the fees are unchanged from
previous years.

This is a normal TWC four-day intensive course, (from midday Saturday to midday
Wednesday) of the kind established by TWC some years ago. Leading experts with
experience in the design and construction of spoken corpora in several languages
teach how to do it, and outstanding figures in written and virtual corpus design
and management do the same for the written form of the language. Statistical
methods for the analysis of corpus frequency data and their implications for
corpus design are explained and discussed. The course is relevant for anyone
using a corpus in their research or their job, and provides a thorough and
up-to-date picture of corpus work and its theoretical foundations. As usual
with TWC, there will be regular practical sessions to follow up the presentations.

TWC events are back in Tuscany after a year of being hosted abroad, and take
place in a new and beautiful venue near Siena. We are pleased to say that we
are able to offer this enhanced location at no extra cost - our fees have been
unchanged for several years now.

For details, see www.twc.it For registration contact me, John Sinclair,
jmstwc.it For another event that immediately follows this Course see separate
notice. Participants who register for both events will be offered a discount on
the total fee.
