Closing the book

So, we’re now moving on to the final unit of the course, released on Monday 28th April at 11.00 (UK time)  and given that it’s a busy term and you may still be working on previous units, we’ve decided to keep it a short one. This module will provide a guide on how to use the Corpus Query Language function in Sketch Engine, as well as additional support on how to build your own mini-corpus. We’ll also remind you of ways to stay in touch and share useful links once the course is over.

Just to reassure you that the course website will stay open until Sunday 17th April – which is also the deadline for the final assignment – so you have time to catch up if need be. For those who successfully complete the course, you will also have permanent access to a self-study version of the course containing most of the content.

Concordancing revisited

Unit 5 is available on Monday 22st March at 10:00 (UK time) and returns to the topic of concordancing and expands by looking at the N-gram and frequency functions.
Just a couple of reminders: remember about the final assignment explained in the previous unit.
