"Extending the scope of corpus-based research: new applications, new
challenges" is a collection of articles which highlights some of the
challenges facing English Corpus Linguistics at the beginning of the
21st century and shows how these challenges are being addressed by
researchers. In sections on corpus methodology, language description
and foreign language learning and teaching, researchers address a
broad range of topics from methodological standardization,
experimental research design, tagging and parsing corpora and the
value of enriched corpus annotation to web-based research, tools for
analysing language on the web and language learning via an Internet
Grammar. There is a broad spectrum of research encompassing
grammatical and lexical analyses of different varieties of early and
Modern English, bilingual code switching, learner English and
theoretical and practical approaches to the oft-neglected spoken
medium. As such, the collection offers a global, up-to-date
appreciation of theoretical and practical issues which will be of
value to researchers in many areas of English Linguistics.
