The aim of this volume is to showcase the range of corpus-based
linguistic research currently being carried out on languages other
than English. The papers included report on work carried out on
Arabic, Bulgarian, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Biblical Greek,
Biblical Hebrew, Medieval Irish, Korean, Romanian and Swedish,
including a number of regional and social variants. They also address
a range of areas as diverse as corpus design, corpus annotation
register analysis, syntax, and quantitative linguistics. The papers
in this volume will leave the reader in no doubt that corpus-based
research is now being conducted for a whole "rainbow of languages".
