CQPweb: Finding non-English words

Watch Andrew Hardie explain how you can search for "foreign" words in Shakespearean corpora.

Given that you have just heard the video-talk on Latin words in Shakespeare, now seems the moment to tell you how to retrieve “foreign” words in Shakespeare using CQPweb.

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

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