Abstract:

Using the Web as Corpus is one of the recent challenges for corpus
linguistics. This volume presents a current state-of-the-arts discussion of
the topic. The articles address practical problems such as suitable
linguistic search tools for accessing the www, the question of register
variation, or they probe into methods for culling data from the web. The
book also offers a wide range of case studies, covering morphology, syntax,
lexis, as well as synchronic and diachronic variation in English. These
case studies make use of the two approaches to the www in corpus
linguistics - web-as-corpus and web-for-corpus-building. The case studies
demonstrate that web data can provide useful additional evidence for a
broad range of research questions.
