Corpus Course for Teachers
We’ve made it to our final week!!! Unit 7 is all about creating a discipline-specific corpus and a keyword list. In this module, you will have the opportunity to do some self-study and submit your reflective assignment. You will also learn how to keep in touch with us and have the chance to give us some feedback on the course.
We’re now moving on to the last unit of the course that focusses on the tools in Sketch Engine, and it’s a high-concept, high-power thriller (possibly). That’s because this unit will focus on how to use the Corpus Query Language function in Sketch Engine. This can be a bit tricky at first, and it’s fine to shout at your computer while you get the hang of it, but once you do so, you’ll find it allows you to search for complex lexicogrammatical patterns in a corpus and really dig down into the finer grain of the language.
