The Seminar will introduce students to the basic concepts and tools of corpus linguistics. Issues such as corpus representativity, web-as-corpus, crpus-based vs. corpus-driven research will be touched upon. The investigated case studies will focus on cognitive linguistic approach to issues such as polysemy, synonymy, collocations and metaphors. The emphasis will be placed on quantitative research methods, especially on the multivariate analysis of the semantic, syntactic and pragmatic features of word uses. Some examples of qualitative corpus analyses will also be discussed.
