The mission of the lab is to provide a space for collaborative work related to corpus linguistics. We hope to share work related to a wide variety of research areas including but not limited to second language acquisition and use, second language writing, language varieties, and text analysis.  At the same time, the lab serves as a resource for the Michigan State University community by offering corpus-related workshops with applications to teaching and research.
