Congratulations to Dr Dogus Oksuz, a Research Fellow at the Centre for Language Education Research, who has received the Institute for Corpus Research Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award.
The purpose of this annual award is to recognise and reward outstanding theses in the field of Corpus Linguistics.
Dr Dogus Oksuz’s PhD was titled Collocational Processing in Typologically Different Languages, English and Turkish: Evidence from Corpora and Psycholinguistic Experimentation. It combined extensive analysis of corpus data with a series of psycholinguistic experiments to examine how linguistic typology affects processing in English and Turkish by native and non-native speakers of these languages. Some of the findings based on this PhD research are reported in the article published in Language Learning journal.
