Faculty of Language, Literature and Humanities - Corpus Linguistics and Morphology

Anna Shadrova, M.A.

PhD student (Corpus Linguistics, SLA, Idiomaticity, Variation)

Current Projects

Leibniz project on linguistic developments in German Federal Constitutional Court decisions

I work as a Corpus and Computational Linguist and Researcher in Prof. Dr. Christoph Möller's Leibniz project at the Humboldt University Faculty of Law analyzing linguistic developments in German Federal Constitutional Court decisions based on a longitudinal corpus reaching back to the beginning of the GFCC in 1951.

Relevant topics include NLP, data modeling, quantitative linguistics, stilometry, Pattern Recognition, Network Analysis, Topic Modeling, Information Retrieval in formalized language, formalization as a linguistic property, linguistic formalization of formalized language on syntactic and semantic levels.

Dissertation

My dissertation is based on the Kobalt-DaF corpus of German-L2-essays written by Russian and Mandarin native speakers. The study aims at learning more about the verb argument structures learners use at different stages of their German acquisition and whether and how native-like selection may be measured quantitatively in small and medium sized corpora (SMISC)

Working title: Verb argument structures in German SLA: A cross-sectional corpus study

Supervised by Prof. Dr. Anke Lüdeling and Prof. Dr. Amir Zeldes (Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.).

Funded through a scholarship of the Hans Böckler Foundation via the PhD scholarship program of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

DALeKo - Dokumentation und Analyse von Lernersprache


In this project run by the Arbeitskreis Fremdsprachendidaktik (working group on foreign language teaching) of English, Romance and Slavic Studies at the Humboldt University, a corpus of student-written essays in four school-taught languages (English, French, Russian and Spanish) was compiled. At this point, Russian texts elicited in school and university contexts are available with pos and lemma annotations through the  Annis³ search engine and interface. Due to legal restrictions, the data is only available after registration. Please contact Prof. Dr. Anka Bergmann for further information.
