The history of corpus linguistics

Charlotte Taylor has uploaded a set of slides about the history of corpus linguistics and how the field has developed and evolved over time, particularly in the pre- and early-computer eras.

I especially appreciated the slides showing the way attitudes toward corpus linguistics in the past are described and how decisions to undertake corpus linguistics were made.


**Update**

MuraNava also has a neat slideshow about some of the machinery and computer tools that used to be used.
