Transcript

  • 1. The Survey of English Usage corpus By Nerea García Moradillo
  • 2.
    • The Survey of  English Usage corpus was used in the development of one of the most importane Corpus-based Grammars, the Comprehensive Grammar of English .
    • The Survey is based in the Departament of English Language and Literature at University College London
  • 3.
    • The original Survey Corpus predated modern computing.
    • It was recorded on reel-to-reel tapes, then transcribed on paper, filled in filling cabinets and indexed on paper cards.
  • 4.
    • David Crystal and Randolph Quirk made  detailed prosodic and paralinguistic annotations in the transcriptions.
    • Corpus searches required a visit to the Survey.
  • 5.
    • The current researches of the Survey include the construction and the exploration of  corpora.
    • The ICE-GB, the British Component of the  International Corpus of English (ICE) was compiled at the Survey. It was annotated to a very detailed level, with a full grammatical analysis for every sentence in the corpus.
  • 6.
    • The Survey also created the Diachronic Corpus of Present-Day Spoken English (DCPSE), with the word selection of the spoken part of the LLC (London-Lund Corpus), in a manner comparable with the ICE-GB and the  new 800,000 word diachronic corpus.
  • 7.
    • These two corpora comprise the largest collection of parsed and corrected, orthographilly transcribed spoken English language data in the world.
    • The Survey have carried out research and development of software tools to help linguists to use these corpora.
  • 8.
    • The ICECUP research platform uses an intuitive grammatical query representation called Fuzzy Tree Fragments (FTFs) to search parsed corpora.
  • 9.
    • Appart from creating these corpora and tools useful to the corpus linguistics research, they make research into English language.
    • Recent projects include research on the English Noun Phrase, Subordination in Spoken and Written English, and the English Verb Phrase.
