Abstract

Corpus linguistics in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republic of Serbia is not used enough. The reasons for this are many: the lack of language corpora, the fear of computer methods, and the still present traditional approach to data processing that is qualitative or does not go beyond descriptive statistics. We will often hear arguments against the computer method, such as that a large number of examples that are the result of a search query can impair the quality of the analysis and be misleading. However, the development of technology has also influenced the development of information literacy in all human activities, including the academic community. In this paper, we will try to explain how several departments of English studies in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia in cooperation with The Society for Language Resources and Technologies – JeRTeh in Belgrade offered a solution to the student corpus, describe the process of collecting corpus until its final form and demonstrate what search options the corpus offers to its end users.
