The University of Portsmouth is a growing centre for corpus linguistics in the UK
What we offer
Teaching and research
Corpus linguistic methodologies are integrated in undergraduate and postgraduate courses in lexicology, discourse analysis and linguistic workshops. We supervise postgraduate linguistic dissertations, at both MA and PhD level.
Our research interests cover a wide area of corpus linguistic work, and provide for doctoral supervision in a range of specialisms. Glenn Hadikin’s research is about phraseology and Lexical Priming in New Englishes/learner language and John Williams has extensive experience of using corpora in lexicography. Other members of staff have been involved in designing corpus interrogation software and building corpora. We have also been involved in knowledge transfer activities, such as the 'Using Corpora in Translation' webinar for eCPD
Corpus Linguistics in the South
We are part of the 'Corpus Linguistics in the South' network, bringing together corpus linguists for a series of events and workshops since 2011.
