Researching Vocabulary Sophistication in Children's Writing with a Corpus

Gastvortrag von Prof. Dr. Philip Durrant (University of Exeter)

This presentation will describe the process of conducting a corpus linguistic study into vocabulary development in children's writing. It will set out the theoretical background that formed the rationale for the study and follow the research process from data collection and preparation through to analysis and conclusions. The session will aim to be both practical - showing participants the 'nuts and bolts' of how the research was done - and reflective - thinking through the strengths and limitations of the methods and what they are and are not able to tell us.
