Ashwaq’s research investigates Saudi women’s identities and language on Twitter. It focuses on the textual linguistics features which she will find in the Tweets. In her research, Ashwaq will use corpus analysis tools, to identify keywords, collocations and to extract concordance lines, chiefly around certain parts of speech such as pronouns, verbs, and adjectives.
