a corpus can be subdivided into an unlimited number of parts called subcorpora. Subcorpora can be used to divide the corpus by the type (fiction, newspaper), media (spoken, written) or time (e.g. by years) or by any other criteria. A subcorpus can also be created from a concordance by including all concordance lines and the documents they come from into a subcorpus. How to create a subcorpus»
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.
