Introduction to corpus linguistics 1

  1. 1. INTRODUCTION TO CORPUS LINGUISTICS
  2. 2. CORPUS LINGUISTICS The corpus linguistics approaches the study of language in use through corpora (Singular: Corpus). Corpus: A corpus is a large, principled collection of naturally occurring examples of language stored electronically.
  3. 3. CORPUS LINGUISTICS DEALS WITH TWO FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH QUESTIONS  What particular patterns are associated with lexical and grammatical features.  How do these patterns differ within varieties and registers.
  4. 4. SCHOLARS CONTRIBUTION IN CORPUS LINGUISTICS.  Many notable scholars, have, of course, contributed to the development of modern-day corpus linguistics:  Leech, Biber, Johansson, Francis, Hunston, Conrad, and McCarthy, to name just a few. These scholars have made substantial contribution to corpus linguistics.  Many corpus linguist, however John Sinclair to be one of, detected that a word in and of itself does not carry meaning, but that meaning is often made through several words in a sequence.(Sinclair: 1991). This is the idea that forms the background of corpus linguistics.
  5. 5. WHAT CORPUS IS NOT? Corpus Linguistics is not  able to provide negative evidence  able to explain why  Able to provide all possible language at once.
  6. 6. CORPUS LINGUISTICS IS NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE NEGATIVE EVIDENCE.  This means corpus linguistics is not able to provide what’s possible or correct or what’s not possible or incorrect in language; it can only tell us what is or is not present in the corpus.
  7. 7. CORPUS LINGUISTICS IS NOT ABLE TO EXPLAIN WHY  Corpus Linguistics is not able to explain why something is the way it is, only tell us what is. To find out why, we, as users of language, use our intuition
  8. 8. CORPUS LINGUISTIC IS NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE ALL POSSIBLE LANGUAGE AT ONE TIME  By the definition, a corpus should be principled: “a large, principled collection of naturally occurring data…”, meaning that the language goes into a corpus isn’t random, but planned.
