Workshop On the Status and Use of Corpora in Linguistics, Montpellier June 1-2 2012

Welcome to the website of the workshop Corpora in Linguistics to be held at the University of Montpellier 3 on June 1-2 2012. This workshop is centered around the issues of the status and use of corpora in linguistics and is organized by the research center EMMA (Etudes Montpellieraines du Monde Anglophone). It will take place at the recently inaugurated Saint-Charles research center located at the heart of Montpellier's historical district.

Getting to the Saint-Charles Research Centre:

The Saint Charles Research Centre is located next to the Place Albert 1er Tramway station (line 1, blue tramway, "direction Mosson" when coming from the station/the old town). The entrance is at the rear of the building (on the city centre-bound platform, you'll see a white gate with a "Université Paul Valéry" sign.)

Arriver au Centre Saint-Charles :
Le centre Saint-Charles se situe juste à côté de la station de Tramway Place Albert 1er (ligne 1, tramway bleu, direction Mosson quand on vient de la gare/du centre ville).
On entre par un portillon blanc donnant sur la voie qui permet de retourner vers le centre-ville. Il y a normalement un panneau "Université Paul Valéry".
