Description
Target group 

Target group: Everybody interested in learning Slavic languages or pursuing Slavic languages related study (also cultural and literary).

 
Contents 

During the course, the participants will be introduced to the Slavic corpora that might support language and culture learning, research and work as a translator. The course will give a detailed insight into the types of corpora (e.g. national, reference, synchronic, diachronic, web corpora) as well as methods of working with them (mainly through on-line corpus managers). No former knowledge of language technology is required. The course is most suitable for students who have at least basic knowledge of one Slavic language or who have completed some other course in Slavic linguistics. The course participants should be able to define their language, research and study interests at the beginning of the course so that the choice of the corpora discussed could be adjusted more precisely.
