Meeting Description:

Corpus Linguistics ‘in the very very South’

We are pleased to announce the first in a series of annual meetings intended to draw together researchers in Southern Africa and beyond who work with corpora - or who would like to! A blend of conference presentations, networking sessions and training workshops, Corpus Week is aimed at sharing experience and expertise, as well as inspiring researchers from diverse areas of linguistics and other disciplines to see the potential for incorporating corpus methods in their work.

Expressions of interest in getting involved are now invited - whether you would like to offer a training workshop, present corpus research or just come and meet like-minded researchers, you would be very welcome. The meeting will offer something for everyone, from the experienced researcher to the intrigued newbie.
