Workshop 'Web-based Corpora and Lexicology'

The internet is increasingly being used as a source of linguistic information, both as data for linguistics proper and for numerous applications in information science. The Department of Information Science/Media Informatics and the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Regensburg University are pleased to announce a one-day workshop on web-based corpora and lexicology, featuring presentations about the construction, annotation, and use of large, uncontrolled corpora, in order to provide a basis for discussion of their potential benefits in various scientific domains.
