As part of the ICAME32 conference in Oslo, we are organising a debate. The notion is:
“Language corpora are no longer necessary for linguistic research.”
and four speakers are kicking the debate off by making an introductory statement for or against the motion. We are hoping the opening statements will encourage a lively debate with participatin from the floor. The debate will end with concluding statements by the four invited speakers and proceedings will close with a vote from the floor.
The debate will be recorded and made available online.
