Doing language sciences in the digital age – by Gede Primahadi W. Rajeg

Gede Primahadi Wijaya Rajeg, PhD (website) was invited to give a guest lecture under the theme: Doing Language Sciences in the Digital Age at the English Study Program, Faculty of Foreign Languages, Mahasaraswati University, Denpasar. 

The lecture was targeted at the fourth- and six-semester undergraduate students at the Program. The first part of the lecture provided a brief overview of linguistics and its sub-areas. The second part of the lecture discussed how students’ linguistic research project can take advantages of the technological advances characterising the field of corpus linguistics, particularly the availability of large collection of digitalised texts (i.e. language corpora) and the retrieved quantitative information from analysing large dataset from corpora; this was illustrated with a number of simple case studies around the word’s usages on the basis of data from the Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA) and the Coronavirus Corpus (webpage).
