Title: Seeing through Multilingual Corpora
Subtitle: On the use of corpora in contrastive studies
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 26

Abstract:

Through electronic corpora we can observe patterns which we were unaware of
before or only vaguely glimpsed. The availability of multilingual corpora
has led to a renewal of contrastive studies. We gain new insight into
similarities and differences between languages, at the same time as the
characteristics of each language are brought into relief. The present book
focuses on the work in building and using the English-Norwegian Parallel
Corpus and the Oslo Multilingual Corpus. Case studies are reported on
lexis, grammar, and discourse. A concluding chapter sums up problems and
prospects of corpus-based contrastive studies, including applications in
lexicography, translator training, and foreign-language teaching. Though
the main focus is on English and Norwegian, the approach should be of
interest more generally for corpus-based contrastive research and for
language studies in general. Seeing through corpora we can see through
language.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
