I had to opportunity to present at a workshop on corpus linguistics for our graduate student conference, Feb 22. A corpus (or corpora (plural)) is a collection of interviews or text. Part of my job is to learn how to learn corpus query protocol (cqp), which is using a sever to do corpus linguistics and teach it to the department. It’s a fancy way of saying I have to learn a bit of coding. This is definitely not the first time I’ve been asked to learn something on the job. While I was a research assistant at Emory, I was not only using databases, but I had to teach my boss how to use it as well. This resulted in authorship for an article in the Journal of Neuroscience in 2016. Maybe computers are my calling?
