Abstract

Regular expressions offer a powerful and flexible tool for corpus searches. Rather than only searching for individual words or sequences of words, regular expressions allow for far more complex strings to be extracted from a corpus. In this session, I will introduce the concept of a regular expression, and we will then practice using this method to search corpora for a variety of increasingly complex grammatical constructions.
