Abstract:

Corpus Linguistics seeks to provide a comprehensive sampling of real-life
usage in a given language, and to use these empirical data to test language
hypotheses. Modern corpus linguistics began fifty years ago, but the
subject has seen explosive growth since the early 1990s. These days corpora
are being used to advance virtually every aspect of language study, from
computer processing techniques such as machine translation, to literary
stylistics, social aspects of language use, and improved language-teaching
methods.

Because corpus linguistics has grown fast from small beginnings, newcomers
to the field often find it hard to get their bearings. Important papers can
be difficult to track down. This volume reprints forty-two articles on
corpus linguistics by an international selection of authors, which
comprehensively illustrate the directions in which the subject is
developing. It includes articles that are already recognized as classics,
and others which deserve to become so, supplemented with editorial
introductions relating the individual contributions to the field as a whole.

This collection of readings will be useful to students of corpus
linguistics at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well as
academics researching this fascinating area of linguistics.

Geoffrey Sampson is Professor of Natural Language Computing, and Diana
McCarthy is a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow, in the Department of
Informatics at Sussex University.
