Introduction to AntConc

Frankland G128
Wednesday 27 November 2019 (14:00-15:30)



Instructor: Dr Paul Thompson
Venue: Frankland G128

AntConc is a freeware corpus analysis programme written by Laurence Anthony (Waseda University, Japan) and is used by corpus researchers worldwide. The programme (Windows, Mac and Linux versions available) allows researchers to investigate their own corpus data and explore frequency and patterning in the data. In this workshop, we will look at how to prepare data for analysis in AntConc and then at each of the tools within AntConc. In addition to AntConc, we will also look at other freeware programmes that Laurence Anthony has created: EncodeAnt, AntGram and TagAnt. 

The workshop is offered by the Centre for Corpus Research and it is open to UoB students and research visitors. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  Contact Michelle Devereux ( to register for the workshop.
