Can computational methods assess the #sentiment of complex texts? In an article with my fabulous colleagues from the @WZB_Berlin, @unipotsdam @LMU_Muenchen @JungeAkademie, we answer this question by applying #dictionary and #scaling methods on a sample of #literature reviews🧵
The article is also a practical #guide to help researchers select an appropriate #method and degree of preprocessing for their own data. Our #corpus consisted of 6.041 summaries of reviews of contemporary German #literature acquired from @perlentaucher00 (2/9)
The linguistic #complexity of #literature reviews differ from other texts with regard to their #language-- ambiguity, irony, metaphors, etc.-- are comparatively difficult to capture with #computational approaches. So how did our different methods fare? (3/9)

Corpuses — large collections of language data — are very useful for writing and editing language-learning materials. This presentation explores how and why, with some specific examples...

#Tibetan #language #education #corpus #linguistics #materials #development

One key is 'frequency lists'. Frequency lists are lists of words based on how frequently they appear in a language. It tells us if any given word is common or rare.

Frequent words are useful. People use them again and again — meaning learners are exposed to them frequently naturally, too. And, the learner has opportunities to use them again and again — giving practice in production.

El miércoles pasado acompañé a @herrerayflia en la firma de un importante convenio con el Ente Nacional de Obras Hídricas de Saneamiento @Enohsa. A través de este acuerdo #Misiones recibirá asistencia financiera para avanzar en obras de infraestructura que permitirán asegurar Image

Comparto la reflexión de nuestro Gobernador en que este tipo de acciones “tienen un componente social, de igualdad de oportunidades y con fuerte impacto sanitario”

El maldito coronavirus nos robó muchas cosas: miles de personas nos dejaron y detuvo nuestra vida bruscamente. En Toledo hoy estamos añorando nuestro #Corpus. Sé que no es lo mismo, pero voy a intentar revivirlo con fotos históricas.
Desde primeras horas, en las calles por que discurrirá la procesión han sido esparcidas miles de ramas de tomillo de la finca Cervatos, confiriendo un aroma indescriptible. La multitud llena poco a poco cada rincón. Foto de John Fyfe, 1967. Image
En los muros de la Catedral se han colgado valiosísimos tapices flamencos en un espectacular despliegue de belleza y riqueza. Foto de Pedro Román hacia 1910. Image

Ever say to yourself: “I know there’s a word that comes next to liable, but I can’t think of which one…”?

Ever want to pull up tens of real-world examples of specific clauses (severability, forum selection, etc.)?

Then #corpora are for you.

Don't be fooled by the complicated name.

In reality, a #corpus is just a collection of texts.

All it takes is a simple search interface to comb through thousands of pages in just instants.
The search results give you an in-context list of how real-world drafters actually use the term you searched for.

The BYU corpora are good examples:

1⃣ COCA (U.S. English):
2⃣ BNC (G.B. English):

La journée de @AFLApplique, c'est aujourd'hui! Petit #livethread sur la #linguistique appliquée! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
@AFLApplique Et on commence par Julien Longhi @jlonghi1 (AGORA & IDHN - Université de Cergy-Pontoise, Institut Universitaire de France) : “Outiller” l’expertise en analyse du discours
politique: méthodes, concepts, ressources.
@AFLApplique @jlonghi1 L'objectif de ses projets est de démocratiser des outils pour analyser le discours politique en temps réel (notamment via twitter ^^):

A new English determinative is being born: "a couple" (e.g., a couple years, a couple things, a couple people). #linguistics #diachronic
It's clearly evolving out of the NP frame "a couple of" + plural NP and may be influenced by the determinative "a few". Even if you don't accept "a couple people", you might find "a couple hundred" works like a gateway drug.
Here's the frequency of "a couple of" + N sinc the 1990s. The first line is the number of tokens, the second is the size of the subcorpus in millions, and the third is the frequency per million words. Not much happening here.
