On 2 December 2016, the AMC hosted the annual meeting of the Corpus Linguistics in Scotland network. The theme this year was ‘Diachrony through Corpora’ and it attracted around 40 participants from Scotland, northern and southern England, and abroad. Our guest speakers gave talks on tracing change and variation in sound and spelling systems, in syntactic constructions as well as metaphorical lexis. We also offered an opportunity for postgraduate students to present work in progress, which was followed by focussed group discussion and a general follow-up. This innovative format went down very well with all participants!
