The University of Sydney
The Department of Linguistics presents
A morning of research talks by investigators from Lancaster’s ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science (CASS)
Professor Paul Baker and Professor Tony McEnery

WEDNESDAY 23 NOVEMBER 2016, 10:00am - 12:30pm

Co-hosted by the Department of Linguistics, the Centre for Translational Data Science, the Faculty of Dentristy and The University of Sydney at Westmead:

Paul Baker (10am - 11am)
Beyond the checkbox: understanding what patients say in online feedback 

Patient feedback plays a vital role in the design and improvement of contemporary health care services, with the results of such exercises now routinely used to regulate standards and stimulate improvements in health care provision. The British National Health Service gathers a great deal of user feedback on its services. Some of this is in ‘check box’ form and easily exploited, yet shallow. However, they also gather free text feedback from patients and this rich dataset is not fully exploited because the scale of the text generated is too great. This talk describes the analysis of a 30 million word corpus of patient feedback to the NHS, based on research questions that were given to us by NHS practioners. It explores methods using frequency, keyness, collocation and concordancing used in order to identify the main drivers of feedback, the extent of positive and negative evaluation and differences between providers and social actors. I also discuss implicational issues for the future of the NHS which arise from the analysis.


Co-hosted by the Department of Linguistics and the Department of English:

Tony McEnery (11:15am - 12:15pm)
Prostitutes and prostitution - exploring a marginalized group in public discourse in the 17th century


What words were used to refer to prostitutes in the 17th century? What prostitutes do? Where did they live? Who did they associate with? What was associated with them? Did the way they were talked about change over time? In this talk I will explore these questions by looking at modern lexicographical resources, 17th century lexicographical resources and the EEBO corpus. In doing so I will cast light on these questions while also exploring the potential and shortcomings of the resources that are used in the study. In particular I will focus upon how the corpus can help us to come to a fuller view of these questions than dictionary resources currently permit. I will also reflect upon and explore ways of dealing with the volatility of collocates over time.
Wednesday 23 November 2016
10:00am - 12:30pm

All welcome!
