Diachronic linguistic analysis on the web with WebCorp

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The WebCorp project has demonstrated how the Web may be used as a source of linguistic data. One feature of standard corpus analysis tools hitherto missing in WebCorp is the ability to filter and sort results by date. This paper discusses the dating mechanisms available on the Web and the date query facilities offered by standard Web search engines. The new date heuristics built into WebCorp are then discussed and illustrated with a case study.
