DIGI Colloquium:

Text Corpora That You Can Use

Friday January 18th from 4-5

John Hale, Arch Professor in Linguistics, will offer a live demonstration of the search tool cqp, showing how corpora that are available right now may be used to address questions about how people use language, what words mean, and how authors achieve their literary ends.
