Hong Kong Texts on Hong Kong: Developing Computer Text Corpora at Hong Kong University.
Hong Kong Papers in Linguistics and Language Teaching, v16 p117-122 Sep 1993
This paper reports on a paper to develop two computer text corpora, called Hong Kong Texts on Hong Kong," at the University of Hong Kong English Centre. These corpora are intended to serve as a resource for teachers and researchers who need information on English usage in published text in Hong Kong. The aim of the report is to disseminate information on the project, and to initiate discussion on how the corpora might be used and developed. The paper is in three sections. Section 1 gives some background information on corpus development and text analysis in language research. Section 2 introduces the two corpora under development in the English Centre. Section 3 raises some issues concerning the use of the corpora and their future development. (Author/JL)
