Corpusmooc round 2

Corpusmooc is back in action.

New course content includes a focus in week 5 (Corpus linguistics in action – looking at social issues through corpora) on forensic linguistics. There is an additional reading by Tim Johns on data driven learning in Week 7 (Language learning and corpus linguistics). In week 4 (How do you build a corpus) there is a new video describing the use of TagAnt part of speech tagger.

Shame no new content on collecting corpora from the web.

There may be other new content I may have overlooked, will update this post if I find any.

New platform additions include a blog aggregator and a twitter visualiser. Unfortunately the forum system is still as clunky as clunky thing can be.

For any language teachers reading this do consider checking out the Google+ Corpus Linguistics community.

For example you may like to read blog posts by participants from round 1 of corpusmooc.
