First blog post

As the new year has begun, so has a new period of my life that is dedicated to learning about corpus analysis and computational linguistics. In February this year I will be starting a Master of English and New Media Studies at AUT. I was lucky enough to receive a scholarship for it which I am very much grateful for. If it wasn’t for the scholarship, I probably wouldn’t be able to do it. In the first semester I will be taking courses on natural language processing, discourse analysis, new media studies and new media research methods. In the second and third semesters I will embark on a thesis. And who knows what I will be doing after that! This blog is both a journal and a guide. It is a way for me to reflect on what I am learning and also explain the things I have learnt in a way that I wish I had had access to.

Wish me luck!
