    Dear list members,
    I am seeking advice on the best way to organize a corpus linguistics course
    in my English department. Starting in february 2003, 2 hours every other
    week for 12 to 13 weeks (that is our second semester) so about twelve hours
    altogether. I can have a computer room with 10-12 PCs.
    I would like to know what corpora and what tools to buy (my BNC-World
    failed to install and I sent the CDs back). Of course the less money I ask
    for, the happier my head of department will be. Still I want the students
    to have hands-on sessions with software that runs smoothly so as not to put
    them off corpus linguistics for ever. They are second-year students in
    France (Paris-Sorbonne Nouvelle) studying for a degree in English.
    Thanks for your help. I will post a summary of the numerous replies I receive.
