Laboratory for Corpus Research in Applied Linguistics (CORAL)

In the CORAL Lab we investigate language using large, principled collection of texts, also known as corpora. The goal of the lab is to further the use corpus linguistics tools to answer applied linguistics research questions. Some of our projects involve examining the linguistic characteristics of university writing, describing the language of political debates, and developing corpus-based materials for language teaching.
