Dr Halid Bulić (Associate professor at University of Sarajevo, Faculty of Philosophy; Bosnia and Herzegovina) will give a talk on

“The first SMS corpus in the Bosnian language“

Time: 4-6 pm

Venue: R009, RW-Gebäude (university campus)

Abstract: SMS messages as a means of communication experienced a “golden decade” in the first decade of the 21st century. After this period, the need for SMS messages decreased as the phone market began to be dominated by the so-called smartphones, which made it possible to send instant messages free of charge. However, SMS messages still exist, and some rules of communication and innovations in language and style developed in SMS discourse have been transferred to communication using new tools, so that SMS messages are still an important language material that is worthy of serious research. In general, linguists have not devoted much attention to describing the language and style of SMS messages. The first corpus of SMS messages in the Bosnian language was created at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo, with the aim of enabling easier research into SMS discourse and gaining more substantial knowledge about the Bosnian language. The lecture discusses its origin, structure, purpose and methodology with regard to data collection.
