Corpus-based and/or Computational Approaches to Language and Literature (CCALL)
Humanity’s linguistic and cultural output is increasingly produced in the form of digital text. This vast record of how our language is naturally used for communication and conveying cultural concepts is an invaluable source of information, provided that we have adequate methods to study it. Analyses of patterns and structures in large collections of these data can have applications in language teaching, automatic language and speech technology, and archival practices. We can observe what successful communication looks like in practice or learn which works of literature have been impactful based on references made to it. We contribute to research in these fields by bringing together people from various disciplines and combining research methods, including computational and multidisciplinary approaches.
