I'm primarily interested, at the moment, in activities or operations that rely heavily on
the fact that the text is computerised, i.e. that would be difficult or impossible to do
with 'analogue' text. I'm particularly interested in the sort of things that can be said
to happen invisibly, i.e. operations performed on text as encoded entities that might only
be secondarily displayed using fonts, or perhaps not displayed at all. So yes, I think the
sort of things corpus linguists might do would be of interest, and I'd like to gain an
understanding of some examples.
