AMC Corpora Workshop

Following the AMC Symposium on Historical Dialectology, the AMC will host an introductory workshop for those interested in exploring the content and potential of selected AMC’s corpora and linguistic atlases.

Aims and content

The AMC Corpora Workshop is a short event designed to introduce eLALME and LAEME to those who are unfamiliar with their content and functionality. With direct access to both these online Atlases, the participants will learn how to access their contents via a series of structured activities and, by the end of the event, will have a basic grounding in the following areas:

  1. eLALME & LAEME: corpus materials; data collection methods; data organisation and presentation
  2. Search tools
    • eLALME: County Dictionary; Linguistic Profiles; Item List
    • LAEME: Form Dictionary; Corpus Files; Tag Dictionary; Item List; County List; Linguistic Profiles
  3. Display tools
    • eLALME: ready-made Dot Maps; DIY Dot Maps
    • LAEME: ready-made Feature Maps; DIY Feature Maps; concordancing
