English Corpus Linguistics
An Introduction

Charles F. Meyer, University of Massachusetts, Boston, MA

This step-by-step guide to creating and analyzing linguistic corpora
discusses the role that corpus linguistics plays in linguistic
theory. It demonstrates 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. The author shows how to collect and computerize data for
inclusion in a corpus and how to annotate and conduct a linguistic
analysis once the corpus has been created.


1. Corpus analysis and linguistic theory; 
2. Planning the construction of a corpus; 
3. Collecting and computerizing data; 
4. Annotating a corpus; 
5. Analyzing a corpus; 
6. Future prospects in corpus linguistics;
