Comment: Forthcoming

Working with Specialized Language: a practical guide to using corpora
introduces the principles of using corpora when studying specialized
language. The resources and techniques used to investigate general
language cannot be easily adopted for specialized investigations. This
book is designed for users of language for special purposes
(LSP). Providing guidelines and practical advice, it enables LSP users
to design, build and exploit corpus resources that meet their
specialized language needs. Highly practical and accessible, the book
includes exercises, a glossary and an appendix describing relevant
resources and corpus-analysis software. Working with Specialized
Language is ideal for translators, technical writers and subject
specialists who are interested in exploring the potential of a
corpus-based approach to teaching and learning LSP.
