The Corpus Query Language is a code used to set criteria for complex searches which cannot be carried out using the standard user interface controls. The criteria may not only include words or lemmas but also tags, text types and other attributes. Logical operators (AND/OR/NOT) can be used. See the CQL manual.
Adam Kilgarriff Prize
Adam Kilgariff (1960-2015) was a British corpus linguist and founder of Lexical Computing, the company behind Sketch Engine. Adam devoted his whole life to research at the intersection of corpus linguistic, computational linguistics and lexicography.
To honour our brilliant and much-loved colleague, we established the Adam Kilgarriff Prize for outstanding work in the fields to which Adam contributed so much: corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, and lexicography.
