Hands-on workshop on Boundaries in Empirical (Linguistic) Data


The workshop (28. April, 2017, 9.00-14.00) is conceived and hosted by the URPP members Curdin Derungs (GISLab), Wolfgang Kesselheim (VideoLab), and Tanja Samardžić (CorpusLab). The general idea is to present case studies, including associated data, and to provide simple tools that allow hands-on discussions of boundaries in linguistics. Participants can register for one of the three case studies:

  • Case study 1: Boundaries in Interactional Space (VideoLab)

  • Case study 2: Spatial Boundaries in Areal Linguistics (GISLab)

  • Case study 3: Spatial spread of linguistic features extracted from Twitter (CorpusLab)

Findings from the three case study groups will be discussed in a common concluding session. 

The workshop is free for participants of the conference. The number of participants is limited to max. 45 persons. Registration for the workshop is open until 15.3.2017. Information on how to register can be found here: Workshop Description (PDF, 148 KB)

Please note that there is an excursion taking place at the same time. You will have to choose if you want to participate in the workshop or the excursion.
