The British Corpus of Architecture Writing (BCAW)
The British Corpus of Architecture Writing (BCAW) contains a
collection of undergraduate student assignments (dissertations) and practitioners’
documents in the UK (Design and Access Statements DASs).
The BCAW was compiled as part of my PhD project entitled “An
Investigation of UK Architecture Students’ and Practitioners’ Writing: A Corpus
Linguistics case study”. It will be analysed to better understand the
linguistic features of architecture writing.
The BCAW was marked-up for the different sections in
students’ dissertations and practitioners’ DASs. It was also manually tagged
for Appraisal markers.
