is a sequence of a number of structures (bigram = 2 structures, trigram = 3 structures…n-gram = n structures) typically letters or words but also phonemes or syllables. Generating a frequency list of such sequences can help us notice which structures tend to combine in a language. n-grams are generated using the word list feature.
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.
