The OTA are attending the ICAME 2011 conference in Oslo. The conference, running from 1-6 June 2011, has the title ‘Trends and Traditions in English Corpus Linguistics In Honour of Stig Johansson ‘ and offers a rich and varied programme, as seen on the conference website.
Before the conference officially opens, proceedings will commence with an afternoon of pre-conference workshops. The OTA is organising a debate around the question ‘Do we still need language corpora?’. An outline of the debate can be found on the conference website. We are hoping to see a lively debate. Reports from the debate and the rest of the conference will be added to the blog. You can also follow us on Twitter @oxtext.
