Structural and Corpus Linguistics

Discipline: Applied foreign languages for administration and management

Corpus linguistics is a methodology that involves computer-based empirical analyses (both quantitative and qualitative) of language use by employing large, electronically available collections of naturally occurring spoken and written texts, so-called corpora. Corpus-based studies and other empirical research have shown that speakers’ intuitions oftentimes provide only limited access to the open-ended nature of language, which can cause problems when examining infrequent linguistic structures, e.g. lexical co-occurrence patterns, patterns of variation between grammatical constructions, word meaning, or idioms and metaphorical language.
