Text corpora, i. e. large collections of text data, are avaluable source for linguistic research and language learning.
In this course, we compare different corpora, e. g. theBritish National Corpus (BNC), a corpus of academic written English, and acorpus of texts written by students of English from the University ofHildesheim. We discuss methods for finding linguistic differences between e. g.native speakers and learners of English - and how we can benefit from thesefindings for our own language learning.
