Corpus linguistics community news 5

It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you
Without some corpus news to read through
(I know you got corpus soul)

First off, if you are a user of BYU suite of corpus tools do consider helping to correct their corpus of soap operas, should you get to 500 words your name will be in the acknowledgements. Nice.

Next up are some interviews with Alex Boulton on some issues in DDL, Ivor Timmis on his new corpus book for ELT and Andrew Caines on a spoken corpus project.

For those interested in XML tagging there is something on using UK 2015 election forewords to follow a tutorial using rhetorical tagging.

For those interested in multi-word tagging some descriptions, part 1 and part 2 of using one program called AMALGrAM 2.0.

Finally an fyi to check out the latest version of Ted Corpus Search Engine which now has translations and synced transcriptions.

Till next time.

Thanks for reading.

    1. Looks like a great book but at $50 here in the US I may have to pop it on my “Wish List” for a while. So many books, so little time, so little cash 😉
