This is a satellite workshop to the 2024 MEDAL Summer School in Experimental Linguistics that is open to everybody!

Eva Soroli, Associate Professor of Psycholinguistics at the University of Lille and CLARIN Ambassador, will examine the intersection of experimental and corpus-based methodologies, and focus on the role of research infrastructures such as the CLARIN-ERIC in linguistic research.

The workshop will feature demonstrations encompassing hands-on presentations, focusing on two main themes:


  • Integration of Corpus and Experimental Methods: Participants will learn techniques for combining corpus analysis with experimental approaches, enabling hypotheses testing.
  • Annotation and Analysis of Production Data with CLARIN (CLAN): A key emphasis will be on mastering CLAN software for annotating and analyzing production data, equipping researchers with essential skills for linguistic analysis and interpretation of their results.
  • Participants will engage in practical sessions aimed at elucidating how experimental linguists can benefit from the CLARIN services and tools.

The goal of this workshop is to support early-stage researchers (in the first 4 years of their research careers from the date they embarked on a doctorate) but also more experienced researchers (in possession of a doctoral degree and within their first 5 years of their career) in the development of their methodological skills. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop and data.
