Breve descriptor:

This course is designed to increase awareness of computational and corpus tools and their applications for linguistic research. It provides ways to learn about various tools to at least partially automate or accelerate linguistic analysis, providing students with a greater understanding of how and when to use empirical approaches to linguistic analysis. A large emphasis of the course is in how to deal with large amounts of language data and to understand practical issues in dealing with corpora, annotation and multi-lingual data. It covers computer methods for doing linguistics with on-line corpora. Includes extensive introduction (with lab) to the Python programming language, UNIX corpus tools, concordance programs, syntactic treebanks, propbanks, and corpora for lexicogrammatical, pragmatic and discourse research.

Requisitos

Basic computer and internet skills. Programming skills are desirable but not a prerequisite.

Objetivos

 At the end of the course, students will have learnt basic aspects of the computational perspective on language, focusing on the preprocessing, markup and annotation of English computer corpora, as well as on the handling of corpus analysis and query tools for the extraction of linguistic information from machine-readable datasets. They will also become familiar with different computational and linguistic applications emerging from the computer-aided analysis of corpora

 

Contenido

Unit 1: Introductory Issues: Definitions and approaches. What is a corpus. Corpus types. Constructing corpora (week 1-3)


Unit 2: Second generation corpora: British National Corpus; Corpus of Contemporary American English; Corpus analysis tools (weeks 4-6)


Unit 3: Corpus data: access and analysis. Data processing; corpus mark-up and annotation; annotation standards; tokenising and part-of-speech tagging; lemmatising and morphological tagging; quality assurance, reusability and sustainability; syntactic processing, sense and semantic tagging; searching and concordancing.(weeks 7-11)


Unit 4: Corpus exploitation: corpora and lexicogrammatical studies, corpora and word meaning, corpora and discourse analysis, other computational applications. (weeks 12-14)

Evaluación

The final grade will be calculated according to the percentages below.The participation grade includes attending class regularly and participating actively. Other in-class activities (written questions about the readings, reading logs, reports, group work, oral presentations) will also count towards your participation grade. There will be several assignments, a group project and a a final take-home exam. More detail on each of these will be provided throughout the semester.
