Methods in Historical Corpus Building

The workshop aims to be a venue for best-practice exchange and the user-oriented transfer of corpus building techniques. It is intended both for complete beginners as well as researchers already using corpora who have specific practical or theoretical questions pertaining to their research. Although the workshop revolves around to historical data, the technologies and methods presented are equally useful for contemporary language data.

Expressions of modality in Germanic: Competition and change

This workshop is concerned with (changes in) expressions of modality in the histories of the Germanic languages. To gain a better understanding of modal expressions in older Germanic languages, of how they compete and how they change, the workshop features corpus-based studies that are semasiological or onomasiological in nature, based on a single language or a comparison of two languages or more.
