On Friday, 2 December 2016, the Angus McIntosh Centre for Historical Linguistics will host the annual meeting of the Corpus Linguistics in Scotland network.
The topic for this year is “Diachrony through Corpora” and the aim of the meeting is to provide a networking opportunity for people interested in exploring diachronic questions in corpora, regardless of the period and/or language. Moving away from a diachronic focus on a single area of linguistic analysis, e.g. morphology or lexicon, we hope to gain new insights from cross-disciplinary outlooks within corpus linguistics.
