[Roberta Facchinetti;] -- This volume offers a state-of-the-art picture of work undertaken in the field of computer-aided corpus linguistics. While the focus is on English, central insights can be generalised to other. Corpus Linguistics seeks to provide a comprehensive sampling of real-life usage in a given language, and to use these empirical data to test language hypotheses. Modern corpus linguistics began fifty years ago, but the subject has seen explosive growth since the early s. These days corpora are being used to advance virtually every aspect of language study, from computer processing.

    It introduces the corpus-based approach to linguistics, based on analysis of large databases of real language examples stored on computer. Each chapter focuses on a different area of linguistics, including lexicography, grammar, discourse, register variation, language acquisition, and historical linguistics. As time goes by, the corpus linguist operates increasingly in the awareness of what has gone before. Corpus Linguistics, thirty years on, is less an innocent sortie into corpus territory on the basis of a hunch than an informed, critical reassessment of existing analytical orthodoxy, in the light of new data coming on stream.

Corpus linguistics is the study of language as expressed in corpora (samples) of "real world" text. Corpus linguistics proposes that reliable language analysis is more feasible with corpora collected in the field in its natural context ("realia"), and with minimal experimental-interference.

English Corpus Linguistics is a step-by-step guide to creating and analyzing linguistic corpora. It begins with a discussion of the role that corpus linguistics plays in linguistic theory, demonstrating that corpora have proven to be very useful resources for linguists who believe that their theories and descriptions of English should be based on real rather than contrived data.

appropriate to make it explicit that this is a ‘proceedings book’ with an historical theme. Also, the use of Corpus Linguistics 25 Years On–and not the ICAME (since, to be specific this organisation was founded in )–is quite misleading and may provide a casual reader with the wrong impression that CL only started in the early s.

Approximately a quarter of a century ago, the Multi-Dimensional (MD) approach—one of the most powerful (and controversial) methods in Corpus Linguistics—saw its first book-length treatment. In its eleven chapters, this volume presents all new contributions covering.

The use of large, computerized bodies of text for linguistic analysis and description has emerged in recent years as one of the most significant and rapidly-developing fields of activity in the study of language. This book provides a comprehensive introduction and guide to Corpus Linguistics.

All aspects of the field are explored, from the various types of electronic corpora that are available. In this book, these impacts of corpus linguistics will be introduced, explored and evaluated. Before exploring the impact of corpora on linguistics in general, however, let us return to the observation that corpus linguistics focuses upon a group of methods for studying language.

This is an important observation, but needs to be qualified. BESPRECHUNGEN Corpus Linguistics 25 Years On. Ed. Roberta F a c c h i n e t t i.
