CPD in the new year: corpus linguistics course

FutureLearn (similar to Coursera) and Lancaster University are offering a free online class explaining the methodology of corpus linguistics. It is geared towards “researchers in social sciences and humanities”—I think translators easily fall into that group of people, don’t you?

Sign up here if you’re interested in learning more about how corpus-based linguistics works. The course will last 8 weeks beginning in the end of January, with an expected work load of about 3 hours per week. That’s not much to ask of someone who uses corpora on a daily basis! (Linguee, I love you.)

Hat tip to Nathalie Reis for first sharing this on Twitter.
