25/03/20-Corpora nella linguistica tedesca


Caroline Flinz
Università di Milano

With the diffusion of the new technologies and in particular with the creation of corpora of various types, new and interesting research possibilities have opened up in German linguistics, which unfortunately still today are not fully exploited. The reasons for this must be seen in particular in the lack of training which leads to a certain scepticism on the part of both teachers and students.

The aim of this doctoral seminar is to bring doctoral students closer to this reality first by introducing the notion of corpus at a theoretical level and making known the various types of possible corpora, then showing what types of methods and approaches can be used. A choice of resources and instruments will be presented, highlighting their main characteristics and focusing on possible research objectives.
