Meeting Description:

(Session of ABRALIN50)

Corpus/Computational Linguistics has been continuously growing as a result of its possibility to support any field in Linguistics that cares for the study of authentic production and usage data. The area, thus, develops corpora compilation methodologies, tools for their study that range from form listing up to multiple level annotation and metrics for the study of diverse linguistic phenomena. The available corpora, as well as those under current compilation, allow for the study of both spoken and written language. Additionally, corpora serve the purpose of studying the development of specific languages, interlinguistic comparison, and more traditional linguistic areas such as phonology, pragmatics, semantics, syntax and sociolinguistics. Furthermore, corpora are the basis for the development of computational linguistics tools, besides serving as data for multidisciplinary studies such as those in the growing field known as Big Data studies.

The Special Session “Advances in Corpus and Computational Linguistics” is dedicated to the presentation of already available corpora and those under compilation, as well as computational tools for corpora study. This proposal is justified given the diversity found in the area in present-day Brazilian Linguistics, covering among others: the study of first and second language acquisition, the study of specific language varieties, translation studies, as well as methodological studies covering new technologies that foster corpora compilation and analysis.
