    Asdoost completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    The course offers a fair amount of information. A good way to be familiar with corpus linguistics. Although, there is a slight tendency to claim that the Lancaster university is pioneer in this field.

    This course has shown me how underdeveloped, and, thus, relatively useless corpora still are. A promising field, though. I'll look into it again in ten years or so.
