In search of the lost tense/time
Corpus Linguistics Group, PAM 489, 14:15-16:00 6 October 2011
In the presentation, which will be rather future-oriented, I will try to present in a coherent way my intentions for the near future, and which are to try to merge - previous corpus-based work on tense and aspect in Portuguese (and English) - present corpus-driven work on tense and aspect in Portuguese into a future corpus-based descriptive grammar of Portuguese
While doing this, I will
1) share with you some existential problems on the role of statistical methods in corpus linguistics
2) present the current corpus "infrastructure" for Portuguese corpus studies at ILOS
3) present my related intentions for related research (and get critical return form the audience) namely with a view to improved pedagogical "tiltak".
