Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
This course offers a very practical and hands-on introduction to a specific computer corpus, viz. the British component of the International Corpus of English. With the help of concrete examples we will explore their potential (and limitations) for language description. We will consider, for instance, how this corpus can help us identify lexico-grammatical patterns ( e.g. collocations) and language use and how corpora can be used in language teaching.
Participants will conduct their own mini-projects and present their findings in class (pair work possible); project paper (about 1500 words), task-based work with computer corpora (no special computer knowledge required), class discussions of set readings
Occasional reading texts will be provided
