Meeting Description:

Preliminary Notice

The world of corpus linguistics has expanded to include diachronic as well as
synchronic corpora, with ARCHER (A Representative Corpus of Historical English
Registers) serving as a model for a number of other historical corpora, in terms
of annotations and representativeness. Now is an opportune time to bring
specialists together to discuss the construction, annotation and analysis of
diachronic corpora in a variety of languages. This conference is organised by
the GerManC Project, which aims to compile a representative historical corpus of
written German for the years 1650-1800, and is supported by the ESRC and AHRC.

The following have agreed to give plenary papers:

David Denison (Manchester)
Anke L├╝deling (Berlin)
Terttu Nevalainen (Helsinki)
Klaus-Peter Wegera (Bochum)

Organisational Committee:

Martin Durrell
Paul Bennett
