John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in Corpus Linguistics:
Corpus Linguistics at Work.
Elena TOGNINI-BONELLI (Tuscan Word Centre)
Studies in Corpus Linguistics 6
US & Canada: 1 58811 061 3 / USD 57.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 2276 2 / NLG 125.00 (Hardcover)

The book offers a combined discussion of the main theoretical,
methodological and application issues related to corpus work. Thus,
starting from the definition of what is a corpus and why reading a
corpus calls for a different methodology from reading a text, the
underlying assumptions behind corpus work are discussed.

The two main approaches to corpus work are discussed as the
"corpus-based" and the "corpus-driven" approach and the theoretical
positions underlying them explored in detail. The book adopts and
exemplifies the parameters of the corpus-driven approach and posits a
new unit of linguistic description defined systematically in the light
of corpus evidence. The applications where the corpus-driven approach
is exemplified are language teaching and contrastive linguistics.
Alternating between practical examples and theoretical evaluation, the
reader is led step-by-step to a detailed understanding of the issues
involved in corpus work and, at the same time, tempted to explore for
himself some of the major applications where a corpus-driven
methodology can reveal unprecedented insights into linguistic
patterning.

Subject: Historical Syntax: 200 Years of Syntax by G. Graffi

John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in (Historical) Syntax

200 Years of Syntax.
A critical survey.
Georgio GRAFFI (University of Verona)
Studies in the History of the Language Sciences 98

This book argues convincingly against the widespread opinion that very
few syntactic studies were carried out before the 1950s. Relying on
the detailed analysis of a large amount of original sources, it shows
that syntactic matters were in fact carefully investigated throughout
both the 19th century and during the first half of the 20th
century. Moreover, it illustrates how the enormous development of
syntactic research in the last fifty years has already condemned even
several recent ideas and analyses to oblivion, and deeply influenced
current research programs.

The wealth of research undertaken over the last two centuries is
presented here in a systematic way, taking as its starting point the
relationship of syntax with psychology throughout this period. The
critical ideas expressed in the text are based on a detailed
illustration of the different syntactic models and analyses rather
than on the polemics between the different schools.
