Sketch Engine (Mirja)
June 07, 2024 - 12:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m

This workshop provides an insight into the program Sketch Engine. Sketch Engine is an online program used to analyse collections of spoken or written texts (corpora) to find out how language works.
There are many interesting questions that can be answered by analysing corpora. These include questions about linguistic aspects of language, such as the frequency of particular words or grammatical constructions in a language or in varieties of a language. Sketch Engine can also be used for Critical Discourse Analysis. Using frequency analysis and tools to examine the co-occurrence of words, it is possible to find out how language and ideologies are related. Example topics include gender differences, racism, or global warming in relation to language. Sketch Engine offers a wide range of corpora in different languages that can be analysed with the help of the program. In addition, Sketch Engine offers the option to create your own corpus and work with it.
In our workshop, we will show you the features that Sketch Engine offers in detail.
