Corpora across Humanities - Exploring Applications in Health, Education, Translation, Robotics, Law, and AI
The synergy of corpus linguistics with humanities and social sciences, including fields like medicine, education, and artificial intelligence (AI), is of paramount importance in contemporary research and practice. Corpus linguistics, with its focus on the empirical analysis of language based on real-world text data, provides a robust framework for understanding human communication in diverse contexts. In medicine, it aids in analyzing patient-doctor interactions, understanding health-related discourse. In education, corpus linguistics can revolutionize curriculum design and language teaching, offering insights into language usage and pedagogy that are grounded in actual usage rather than theoretical models. Similarly, in AI, the integration of corpus linguistics is vital for the development of more nuanced and effective natural language processing tools, enhancing the ability of machines to understand and interact with human language in a more sophisticated and contextually relevant manner. This interdisciplinary collaboration not only enriches each field but also leads to innovative solutions to complex problems, reflecting the interconnected nature of language and human experience.
Against this backdrop, this special issue aims to explore the dynamic intersection of corpus-based studies and humanities, highlighting innovative methodologies, applications, and theoretical insights that reshape how we understand language, culture, and human cognition. We look forward to your valuable contributions in shaping this narrative and driving the conversation forward. The submitted manuscripts will undergo a rigorous peer-review process before publication in the esteemed journal 'Corpus-Based Studies Across Humanities' (CSH). CSH, an internationally recognized peer-reviewed journal, is dedicated to disseminating pioneering corpus-based research, encompassing both theoretical frameworks and applied or empirical studies within the field of the Humanities and social sciences.
We welcome submissions that cover, but are not limited to, the following themes:
1. Innovations in teaching and learning through corpus-based approaches.
2. AI-driven advancements in health-related translation and interpretation.
3.The interplay between AI, corpora, and translations.
4. Challenges and breakthroughs in legal discourse translation powered by AI.
5.Corpora in education
6.Corpora in teaching and learning
