Before you come to the office hours...
The korpuslinguistische Sprechstunde originated in the idea to support students with regard to different aspects of corpus linguistics. However, the purpose of the office hour is neither to explain to you what corpus linguistics is about, nor how you can work with a linguistic concordancer. (For these matters you will find sufficient material on the homepage, which you can download and work with at home. In addition, corpus-linguistic tutorials take place on a regular basis, and the reader “A guide to Corpus Linguistics” is available in the downloads section.)
The Sprechstunde is also not meant to assist you in finding your term paper or final thesis topics. You should rather think about a possible topic on your own and/or discuss it with your professor.
What the Sprechstunde intends to do is offer you support in various other ways, listed in the following.
How we can help you:
- Technical support: In the office hour we will offer you technical help if you have problems with a corpus or a concordancer.
- Creative input: If you have decided on a topic and you are not sure which corpus to take or which concordance program to work with, we might be able to give you some advice. Of course, you can also ask us about methodological issues.
- Corpus supply: We can try to provide you with the corpora you need for your studies
