Corpus linguistics community news 3

I have realised it’s been a while since I have reported any potentially useful posts I have done over at the G+ CL community. So here is bullletin number 3.

Some pointers when re-writing text for graded readers – this is my interpretation of a Japanese researcher’s slide presentation so I may be talking out me backside!

AntWordProfiler and specialised vocabulary profiling – this arose out of a question that a participant on the iTDi ELT Reading materials design course had.

Videogrep, a tool to make concordances of video – very neat tool, see my first comment to post to see examples using The Big Bang Theory.

Building your own corpus -TagAnt – continuation of my series showing how to use TagAnt POS tagging to mine your DIY corpus.

Semantic tagging Sugata Mitra – oh noes he’s back! Maybe of interest to upcoming round 2 #corpusmooc folk as I try to make sense of semantic tagging.

Seeding BootCat – notes on how best to seed BootCat when building your own corpus from the web.

Don’t forget CL community news 1 and 2 if you have not checked them already.

This will be an occasional thing on postings I’ve been making to the Corpus Linguistics community on Page&Brin’s site which people visiting this blog for such info may find useful (unfortunately you do need to have a chocolate factory account).

Further corpus related postings will probably end up at the G+ site so do check (and join) that if you are interested in that sort of thing. 🙂

You can read CL community news 2 if you have not already.
