Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

Corpora and digital tools have become indispensable resources in many areas of language and translation studies. They open a world of opportunities for both research and teaching purposes, but they also raise practical and methodological challenges which deserve attention from researchers, teachers and students.

The excellence research group FUNCAP (Functional Linguistics and its Applications) at Universidad Complutense Madrid (UCM) (Facultad de Filología) has a long tradition and extensive experience in working with corpora and digital tools for linguistic and translation analysis involving English, Spanish and other languages, both through the development of research projects, innovative teaching activities and the organization of international conferences.

With the current International Webinar we aim at disseminating and sharing with the research community a number of practical issues and methodological challenges which emerge when working with corpora and digital tools in different types of research and teaching scenarios, or when integrating both.

Among the issues that will be presented and discussed at the Webinar we can mention the following:
- Use of corpora for specific linguistic and translation analysis;
- Use of corpus-query platforms for investigating linguistic and translation issues;
- Methodologies for annotating discourse categories in corpora and the challenges involved;
- Case studies using specific digital tools and corpora in language and translation teaching and research.

The presentations at the Webinar will be carried out by members of the FUNCAP research group as well as by invited colleagues from different European and American universities willing to share their experiences with the community.
