John Sinclair is one of the most influential figures in world linguistics, an
innovator who revolutionized the study of spoken discourse and pioneered
corpus-based research.

In this definitive collection, papers reflecting his most important work of the
past decade have been collated and organized into meaningful sections,
providing a clear statement of Sinclair's thinking and research.

* Foundations outlines the major theoretical principles on which subsequent
