The course aims to: Demonstrate that corpus approaches to social science can offer valuable insight into social reality by investigating the use and manipulation of language in society. Equip social scientists with skills necessary for collecting and analysing large digital collections of text (corpora). Provide educational support for those who want to use the corpus method. Demonstrate the use of corpus linguistics in the humanities, especially History. Give a sense of the incredibly wide uses that corpora have been put to. Allow those with an interest in language, who have not heard of the corpus approach before, a new way of looking at language.
