The course aims to:





    • Demonstrate that corpus approaches to social science can offer valuable insight into social reality by investigating the use and manipulation of language in society.



    • Equip social scientists with skills necessary for collecting and analysing large digital collections of text (corpora).



    • Provide educational support for those who want to use the corpus method.



    • Demonstrate the use of corpus linguistics in the humanities, especially History.



    • Give a sense of the incredibly wide uses that corpora have been put to.



    • Allow those with an interest in language, who have not heard of the corpus approach before, a new way of looking at language.
