Workshop on Arabic Corpus Linguistics

Date: 11-12 April 2011

Venue: Conference Centre, Lancaster University

Over the past few years, research into the Arabic language using corpora and corpus methods has moved from a new direction to an active field, with work advancing rapidly on many different fronts of both corpus linguistics and computational linguistics. To create a venue where these different directions on corpus research into Arabic can be brought together to explore progress in the field, the UCREL research centre at Lancaster University will host a Workshop on Arabic Corpus Linguistics on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th April 2011.

The scope of the workshop encompasses both (a) the design, construction and annotation of Arabic corpora, and (b) the use of corpora in research on the Arabic language - in areas including lexis and lexicography, syntax, collocation, NLP systems and analysis tools, stylistics, and discourse analysis.

The provisional programme can be accessed here. Please note, times for individual speakers' sessions are not final and may change.

Keynote speakers:

  • Eric Atwell, University of Leeds
  • Tony McEnery, Lancaster University

We are now calling for participation for the Workshop. Details on how to register for the event can be found below.
