Sketch Engine Boot Camp is an intensive course in using Sketch Engine and its tools to build, search and analyse corpora for the purpose of linguistics, social sciences, lexicography, translation, IT & NLP, language teaching and related disciplines.

By the end of the course, you will become familiar with the interface, learn to build your own corpora, use the Sketch Engine corpora and learn to use the tools and understand the results. Corpus building will cover monolingual, bilingual and learner corpora with the built-in automatic corpus building tool in Sketch Engine.

Each session will finish with practical exercises to promote user independence. Practical examples will draw on real-life scenarios from various research areas.
