Workshop: Introduction to CQPweb
Date: 18 September 2008 Time: 14.00-16.00 pm
Linguistics and English Language workshop:Introduction to CQPweb
CQPweb is a new corpus analysis tool. It is designed as a clone of the popular BNCweb system, but unlike BNCweb, it can be used to analyse any corpus. CQPweb was developed at Lancaster to support teaching and research on corpus-based analysis and its interdisciplinary applications.

In this hands-on introduction to the system, we will look at some of the basic (and one or two not-so-basic) options for analysis opened up by CQPweb. This will include:
This workshop is targeted particularly at members of staff and postgraduate students who might wish to use corpora in their research or teaching.
No prior knowledge of corpus tools is assumed.
