Lifespan Change and Style Shift in the Icelandic Gigaword Corpus

We demonstrate research on syntactic lifespan change and style shift in Icelandic that is made possible by recent advances in Language Technology infrastructure for Icelandic. Our project extracts data from the Icelandic Gigaword corpus and allows us to shed light on how social meaning shapes the linguistic performance of speakers using big data methods that would not have been feasible for us to use without a corpus of this type.
