Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This module is designed to introduce students to the basic notions of Corpus Linguistics and Construction Grammar.

At the end of the course, students should be able
- to investigate the semantics and grammar of lexical items by means of CL tools;
- to investigate lexical features of genres and registers;
- to explain what Construction Grammar is;
- to identify and describe grammatical constructions in terms of CL notions;
- to perform statistical modelling of corpus data;
- to apply CL methodology to the research areas in applied linguistics (e.g. critical discourse analysis, literary stylistics, language learning).
