Group projects starting tomorrow

Tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 5), we’ll use the articles about code-switching and personality markers on Facebook as a springboard into our first group project. Basically, it’s about the sorts of words we use or avoid using in various roles. We’ll try out a few “big data” tools (corpora) for comparing speech and writing conventions, as well as a few programs for presenting information multimodally. If you want to get a head start, take a look at the assignment page. Most of the work will be in class over the next few sessions.
