Meeting Description:

This free two-day workshop, arranged jointly by the University of Auckland and Lancaster University, offers a series of sessions on topics in corpus linguistics and the application of corpus techniques in discourse studies and research on second language acquisition. We welcome everyone who wants to learn more about this versatile methodology for language analysis; no specialised knowledge about language corpora is required, but basic familiarity with the use of computers is presupposed. The workshop offers a mixture of practical and theoretical sessions in which the participants will learn to apply corpus techniques in a number of contexts.

Registration in advance is required, as places are limited.
