AbstractThis paper introduces a new corpus of computer-mediated communication which is currently being compiled at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Based on the experience from this project, the paper also discusses the possibility of implementing major issues in corpus construction into the academic curriculum of young linguists in the form of project-based learning. A variety of new challenges and possible solutions regarding the compilation and processing of new media language are presented./abstract>
