Collocations, multiword expressions and corpus-based discourse analysis

Lehrstuhl für Korpus- und Computerlinguistik


Cooccurrence patterns – such as collocations, multiword expression, valency and distributional semantics – play a central role not only in corpus linguistics but also for studying public discourses and political propaganda. We improve and refine the underlying analytical techniques and develop new interactive methods for multi-modal corpus-based discourse analysis.
