This volume is witness to a spirited and fruitful period in the evolution
of corpus linguistics. In twenty-two articles written by established corpus
linguists, members of the ICAME (International Computer Archive of Modern
and Mediaeval English) association, this new volume brings the reader up to
date with the cycle of activities which make up this field of study as it
is today, dealing with corpus creation, language varieties, diachronic
corpus study from the past to present, present-day synchronic corpus study,
the web as corpus, and corpus linguistics and grammatical theory. It is
thus serves as a valuable guide to the state of the art for linguistic
researchers, teachers and language learners of all persuasions.

After over twenty years of evolution, corpus linguistics has matured,
incorporating nowadays not just small, medium and large primary corpus
building but also specialised and multi-dimensional secondary corpus
building; not just corpus analysis, but also corpus evaluation; not just an
initial application of theory, but self-reflection and a new concern with
theory in the light of experience.

The volume also highlights the growing emphasis on language as a changing
phenomenon, both in terms of established historical study and the newer
short-range diachronic study of 20th century and current English; and the
growing area of overlap between these two.

Another section of the volume illustrates the recent changes in the
definition of 'corpus' which have come about due to the emergence of new
technologies and in particular of the availability of texts on the World
Wide Web.

The volume culminates in the contributions by a group of corpus grammarians
to a timely and novel discussion panel on the relationship between corpus
linguistics and grammatical theory.
