Corpus Linguistics Help
As of 1 April 2013, Sylvia Walter (Email) will be in charge of Corpus Linguistics Help.
Are you interested in an introduction to working with corpus analysis tools (like Antconc or WordSmith Tools) or do you need some help concerning quantitative research? - Join us for one of our tutorials on corpus linguistics or basic statistics!

Resources and links
This section provides introductory reading on corpora and corpus linguistics and many helpful resources for working with corpus analysis software (step-by-step guides on this website and helpful links). It also links to pages that survey existing corpora - these are especially valuable if you already have a research question in mind and are trying to find a suitable corpus to explore it.
Discover the recources for download here!
The web links are here!
Office hour for corpus-linguistic projects
The office hour mainly provides three types of services: 1. technical support (if you have problems using a corpus or concordancer), 2. corpus supply (we can try to provide you with the corpora you need for your study), 3. (limited) creative input (e.g. on the choice of corpus for a particular research question or on methodological issues). Please note, however, that the office hour is not a substitute for meetings with your professor! Any content-related questions must be discussed with her or him.
Before you visit the office hour: Read the FAQs here!

Help develop this site!
If you know about any helpful resources for students interested in corpus-linguistics (a particularly good introductory book that we should add to our bibliography, a helpful website, etc.), you are invited to share your information with us - just send an e-mail. If you wish to give any other feedback (about the homepage, the tutorials, etc.), you can also do so via e-mail.
