I don’t know how many of you are interested in corpus linguistics but I chanced upon the mother of all sites highlighting the topic, with a guide of the programs available, free or for purchase; to do research.
David Lee set up a site called “Devoted to Corpora” and the link is http://personal.cityu.edu.hk/~davidlee/devotedtocorpora/CBLLinks.htm Check it out and let me know what you think. Keep your pop-up blocker up because one comes up occasionally.
The web getting programs are something I want to look into. I think there are better things to do than highlight text, copy and do it again. Way too time consuming! The idea of clicking a button and getting a bunch of data for a DIY corpus sounds really nice right now.
Everything you wanted to know about Corpus linguistics…. but was afraid to ask.
