Programme:
Our Corpus Linguistics Summer School aims to equip participants with critical expertise in both theory and practice of corpus-based linguistic research. Over the course of four days, participants will be actively involved in two kinds of sessions. First, hands-on sessions will put the emphasis on the learning of practical skills for the purpose of extracting and analysing corpus data of various kinds, and the application of this knowledge to specific research projects. Second, participants will also learn about current corpus-based research.

Topics of sessions will include (non-exhaustively):
- Corpus tools and specialized software
- Data exploration
- Creating a custom corpus
- Phraseology
- Introduction to R and tidyverse
- Web scraping with R
- Statistics in corpus linguistics
- Sign language corpora
- Corpora and legal research
