Linguistics Lab

Collections of speech and text, known as corpora, have long played a key role in linguistics. Now with the help of a Learning Technologies Grant [from UGA's Center for Teaching and Learning], UGA linguists have access to an enlarged range of corpora via a dedicated server. These corpora help students gain data literacy in a way that is specific to linguistics -- for instance in courses like Quantitative Methods LING4400 or Finite State Linguistics LING4530. However, project leader Margaret Renwick foresees benefits for many PhD and MA projects, and for a wide variety of academic units on campus that also wish to make use of language data.

Project participants also include Chad Howe, John Hale, Kyle Vanderniet and Donald Dunagan
