100 Best Corpus Linguistics Videos


Corpus linguistics is a field of study that involves the analysis of large collections of natural language data, known as corpora, to understand and describe language use. Corpus linguists use computational tools to analyze and extract patterns and trends from these corpora, which can include written texts, transcripts of spoken language, and other language data. Some common research questions that corpus linguists might address include:

  • What are the most common words and phrases used in a particular language or context?
  • How do people use language to express different emotions or attitudes?
  • What are the syntactic and grammatical patterns that are characteristic of a particular language or genre of text?
  • How does language use change over time, and what factors might be driving these changes?

Corpus linguistics is interdisciplinary and draws on methods and insights from fields such as linguistics, computer science, and statistics. It is widely used in fields such as natural language processing, machine translation, and language teaching, and it has also been used to study language variation and change, language acquisition, and language use in social media and other online contexts.
