Web Corpora as a Language Training Tool
on 23 and 24 November 2018 in Bratislava.

Web corpora now represent a very effective method of obtaining linguistic data in situations
when the creation of a traditional corpus would have been very expensive or very slow. In the
last two decades, the creation and use of web corpus has become a separate branch of corpus
linguistics and web corpora have been created for many languages. These are often as large as
traditional linguistic corpora or even larger.

As this is a relatively new field of research, the conference will enable researchers and
pedagogues who either work in the field of creating web corpora or use them in their
professional teaching practice or for didactic purposes in linguistic disciplines to meet and
share their experience The conference will also focus on the effectiveness and usability of
web corpora for the training of translators and interpreters and also of foreign language
teachers. The main objective of the conference is to show the high potential of web corpora
and thus contribute to scientific research in the field of corpus linguistics.

Themes for papers:

Creating web corpora
- obtaining linguistic data from the internet, identifying the language
- filters, standardization, elimination of disturbances
- deduplication
- segmentation and lemmatization
- morphosyntactic annotation
- syntactic annotation
- choice of a corpus manager

Using web corpora
- assessment of the quality of linguistic data and annotations
- comparison of traditional and web corpora
- use of parallel corpora
- use of source-language and target-language corpora in the training of translators and
- didactic aspects of the use of corpora in language teaching
- design of teaching materials

The conference will also include a section where doctoral students and young researchers will
be able to present their papers.
