Corpus linguistics has been described as an approach, a theory and a method, and our discussions explore the advantages and limitations of the tools, technology and texts associated with corpus linguistics research.
In the Corpus Linguistics Satellite Group, we are interested in how corpora and corpus linguistic methods can be used to answer questions about language, society, history and cognition. Our work is diverse: multilingual, interdisciplinary, theoretical and applied, seeking to address real-world problems and challenges. Some of the areas investigated using corpus linguistic approaches include language learning and teaching, Artificial Intelligence, political discourse, critical discourse analysis, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, health communication, and forensic linguistics.
Our members are drawn from across the university, including
- Business School
- School of Computing
- School of Design
- School of Education
- School of English
- School of History
- School of Languages, Cultures and Societies
- School of Psychology
