Collaborating Faculty
The central idea of the project is to train students to use corpora to answer language-related questions in a scientific way. The project is also an attempt to promote corpus use as an analytical and language teaching tool. It will aim at creating a practical, informative, and user-friendly web-space for corpus-driven student research, containing 1) a user-friendly tutorial; 2) links to free-access corpora with a brief explanation of how to use them and practice activities; 3) projects that guide students through the process of carrying out a corpus-based language research; and 4) students' data-based analyses of language issues.
