Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The aim of this international conference conference is to bring together academics from around the world, and from the Asia Pacific area in particular, in order to report on the varied developments in the use of corpora in linguistics, language learning, and translation studies. Some countries have a number of well-developed projects related to the theoretical and applied aspects of corpus analysis; other countries are just starting to develop corpus resources. Through this conference, we will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and expertise and lay the foundations for future developments in the application of corpus resources in Asia and the Pacific. In addition, we hope the meeting will lead to the establishment of a circulating biennial conference.

Corpora and language learning
