Workshop organization

Annotation of Non-Standard Corpora: Prospects and Challenges 

in collaboration with Dr. Stefan Hartmann (U Bamberg) and Fahime Same (U Cologne)

September 16-18, 2019, University of Bamberg

Despite the popularity of corpus-linguistic methods, the vast majority of accessible resources only reflects a small part of linguistic reality. In this workshop, we discuss strategies and best practices in the compilation and analysis of linguistic corpora, focussing specifically on data that diverges from contemporary written standard varieties.
