Abstract

This book provides a detailed overview of the vision and realisation of the project to construct a National Corpus of Contemporary Welsh (Corpws Cenedlaethol Cymraeg Cyfoes - CorCenCC). Using the Welsh language as a case study, it addresses the conceptual and methodological challenges faced when developing language corpora for minoritised languages. A detailed rationale is provided for decisions taken by the project team in order for CorCenCC to effectively represent the Welsh language in its contemporary context. A conceptual framework is presented for the user-driven design that underpinned the CorCenCC project, along with a detailed blueprint that can function as a scaffold for other researchers embarking on projects of this nature. This book will be of value to those working in language teaching, learning and assessment, language policy and planning, translation, corpus linguistics and language technology, and to anyone with an interest in Welsh and other minoritised languages.
