We're @languagecorpora getting ready to launch our new project @EUErasmusPlus @internacionalUM @LetrasUM + on EU citizens' discourses around freedom of movement. Pls follow @FOMatPlay for regular updates. We're using #corpuslinguistics #discourseanalysis to explore their stories Image
About 17.6 million EU citizens live in another EU country, mostly to work or study. EU citizens enjoy the right to move and live freely in other Member States, to vote and to stand as candidates in municipal and European elections or to petition the Parliament.
The rights related to free movement and residence are governed by Directive 2004/38, which covers most aspects of the freedom of movement of persons. It enables Union citizens to travel, seek work, work, study or retire in another Member State. More here:…

An organization which is particularly set up by the members to praise others and in return get praised by others. Obviously the important research work by linguists and their organizations in the west is not like that.
However, to an outsider (=me) who only had the opportunity (=privilege) to take part becz he happened to have a scholarship, it sure looked like that: A small group of people (with some variations) gathering on different occasions, at different conferences, talking linguistics
Knowing each other so very well. While at the same time, local researchers from these countries/ communities working on similar issues /topics, couldn't be part of these gatherings because they couldn't afford to travel.
> couldn't do the networking
> couldn't collaborate

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.
