Abstract:

ICE-GB is a 1 million-word corpus of contemporary British English. It
is fully parsed, and contains over 83,000 syntactic trees. Together
with the dedicated retrieval software, ICECUP, ICE-GB is an
unprecedented resource for the study of English syntax. Exploring
Natural Language is a comprehensive guide to both corpus and
software. It contains a full reference for ICE-GB. The chapters on
ICECUP provide complete instructions on the use of the many features
of the software, including concordancing, lexical and grammatical
searches, sociolinguistic queries, random sampling, and searching for
syntactic structures using ICECUP's Fuzzy Tree Fragment
models. Special attention is given to the principles of experimental
design in a parsed corpus. Six case studies provide step-by-step
illustrations of how the corpus and software can be used to explore
real linguistic issues, from simple lexical studies to more complex
syntactic topics, such as noun phrase structure, verb transitivity,
and voice.
