Meeting Description:

Learner Corpus Research: From Corpus Design to Data Interpretation

The aim of the Summer School is to introduce learner corpus research through a
series of lectures, workshops and hands-on sessions. It is intended both for
researchers who have recently embarked on a learner corpus project and those who
simply want to know more about this exciting field of research.

From 10 to 14 September 2007, the Centre for English Corpus Linguistics
(University of Louvain) will be organising a Summer School on Learner Corpus
Research: From corpus design to data interpretation.

The following questions will be discussed:

- How to collect a corpus?
- How to annotate a corpus?
- How to analyse the data? (with particular emphasis on phraseology)
- How to interpret the data?

In addition, parallel workshops will be organised on error-tagging and on topics
to be determined in function of participants' interests.

It will take place at the University of Louvain (UCL), in the elegant and modern
city of Louvain-la-Neuve, 30 km south of Brussels.
