UCREL CRS: Wmatrix corpus annotation and comparison tool: bring your own corpus!

Date: 5 December 2013 Time: 3-5 pm

Venue: Faraday A205

Paul Rayson

SCC, Lancaster University

Wmatrix is a web based corpus annotation and retrieval tool which currently supports the analysis of small to medium sized English corpora. In this hands-on workshop in the lab you will be guided through the main functions of Wmatrix which combine the keyness approach with corpus annotation to allow stylistic and conceptual analysis of texts loaded through the web-interface. Wmatrix has been used for numerous studies in linguistics and social sciences (e.g. Shakespeare's comedies and tragedies, argumentation in reading groups, cultural change), medical education (e.g. problem-based learning transcripts), computer science (e.g. mining of early aspects and requirements in software engineering texts), management (e.g. entrepreneurship studies). You will also see a demonstration of recently added features including the CrossTab function that allows cross-tabulation and export of word, POS and semantic tag frequencies as well as showing range information across two or more texts. Please bring along your own corpus data in plain text or XML encoded form to test the system.
