Free BNC workshop: Using large-scale XML corpora in Language and Literature.

When? November 26
Where? Oxford University Computing Services
Deadline: Apply by November 5th
How to apply? Fill out the form at http://www.natcorp.ox.ac.uk/workshop/

We are happy to announce this free one day workshop on using large-scale XML corpora in language and literature. The workshop is aimed at researchers who are aware of the potential for corpus-based methods in language pedagogy or literary research and want to apply them either with their own corpus material or with the BNC in its new format. Technical specialists who want to gain practical experience of using XML for corpus creation, development, and usage may also find the workshop useful. Previous experience of corpus work or the BNC is not necessary. The workshop can be offered free of charge thanks to sponsorship by AHRC Methods network but the number of places is strictly limited. To apply for a place on the workshop, please fill out the form on the workshop website http://www.natcorp.ox.ac.uk/workshop/ before noon on November 5th.

About the workshop:
This one day workshop will introduce the technologies needed to unlock the potential uses of large scale XML-encoded language corpora, with a particular focus on the most recent version of the British National Corpus (BNC XML Edition). Participants will learn how to explore this particular corpus using a variety of generic XML tools, focusing on (but not limited to) XAIRA, a general purpose software architecture for the linguistic analysis of large XML corpora. They will explore the kinds of language learning activities and linguistic analyses best supported by such tools, and discuss the usability of such tools for fundamental linguistic and literary research in large text bases. The course will have a strong practical component, and participants will be encouraged to provide samples of their own textual materials to experiment with corpus construction and analysis.
