Professor Susan Hunston is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and the Chair of the British Association for Applied Linguistics and a Professor of English Language in the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at the University of Birmingham. She has served as the Head of the School of English, Drama and American and Canadian Studies at the University of Birmingham. Professor Susan Hunston is one of the leading researchers of COBUILD (Collins Birmingham University International Language Database) project, which created the first electronic corpus of contemporary text, the Collins Corpus, which later led to the development of the Bank of English and the production of the world's first dictionary based on entirely authentic language, Collins COBUILD English Language Dictionary. She is also one of the primary developers of the Pattern Grammar, which changed how dictionaries, course books and grammar books are written. She is awarded an OBE for services to Higher Education and Applied Linguistics.

  

  

 

 讲座内容简介 

Abstract

 

语料库语言学在阐明学术语言的性质方面具有特别重要的价值。本次讲座将使用三个基于语料库的学术英语研究实例:第一个案例是用“模式语法”(Pattern Grammar)研究学科以及其传播知识的方式,该研究的重点是以that引导的名词从句;第二个案例研究科学发现的思想是如何影响达尔文生平的叙述,虽然达尔文的思想和行为都有详细的记述,但重要发现仍然被归于自然因素而非人为原因;第三个研究案例对文本中单词采取完全定量的分析方法(称为主题建模),演示如何使用该方法来探索跨学科学术期刊的研究主题。通过上述三个案例,本讲座旨在讨论“人”和“机器”在此类研究中的作用。

 

The field of Corpus Linguistics has been particularly valuable in clarifying the nature of academic language. In this lecture I shall give three examples of corpus-based studies of Academic English. The first example is the use of Pattern Grammar to underpin the study of academic disciplines and the ways they transmit knowledge. The study focuses on nouns followed by that-clauses. The second study shows how the ideology of scientific discovery informs a popular account of Darwin’s life. Although Darwin’s ideas and actions are represented in detail, key discoveries are attributed to nature rather than to people. The final study takes a completely quantitative approach to words in texts (known as Topic Modeling), and demonstrates how it might be used to explore the subject matter of an interdisciplinary academic journal. In describing these three examples, the lecture discusses the roles of “the person” and “the machine” in carrying out research of this kind.
