Doğuş Öksüz - Tracking the development of multi-word and multi-morphemic expressions in learner language
Wednesday, 21 June
A large bulk of Estonian historical newspapers have been digitised and made available for research (roughly ~25%). This can be a powerful resource for linguists as well as for historians, literary scholars, and social scientists. The workshop will demonstrate available resources to do text analytics on historical newspaper texts, particularly the ones offered by the National Library of Estonia. It will provide: 1) An introduction to how the materials can be accessed (via a JupyterLab environment and otherwise); 2) What tools and helpful visualisations are available to plan your study; and 3) Simple techniques to analyse historical texts based on keyword searches, frequency analysis, and co-occurrence patterns. Historical digitised newspapers bring in a few extra technical difficulties: 1) technical errors made in digitisation (e.g. OCR errors), 2) variation in language use, 3) imbalance in the datasets. They will be discussed and a few solutions offered to these issues. The workshop will take 1.5 h + 1.5 h. The code used in the workshop will be R, and knowledge in R will be useful. However, on a superficial level, changing a few parameters in a pre-given code is possible also without prior training.
