CQPweb: Distinguishing different parts of speech

Watch Andrew Hardie briefly explain how you can easily distinguish different parts of speech using CQPweb.

This video adds a little note to the previous one explaining how one can extract words of a particular grammatical part of speech. For example, one may wish to extract all the examples of “love” as a verb.

If you have any concerns, or, if you discover some interesting things, put them in the comments.

We strongly advise you to listen to Andrew Hardie’s video in one window of your computer, and open up his program, CQPweb, in another, so that you can practice what he is a saying as he goes along. Obviously, you will need to pause periodically.
