The main focus of this book is the investigation of linguistic variation in
Spanish, considering spoken and written, specialised and non-specialised
registers from a corpus linguistics approach and employing computational
updated tools. The ten chapters represent a range of research on Spanish
using a number of different corpora drawn from, amongst others, research
articles, student writing, formal conversation and technical reports. A
variety of methodologies are brought to bear upon these corpora including
multi-dimensional and multi-register analysis, latent semantics and lexical
bundles. This in-depth analysis of using Spanish corpora will be of
interest to researchers in corpus linguistics or Spanish language.

'[In this book] Parodi and company provide English language accounts of
their research into Spanish corpora. For the first time readers from around
the world who are unable to read Spanish have access to cutting edge
studies of a variety of registers in one of the three main languages in the
world… Especially rewarding are the insightful discussions of the
communicative purposes which motivate factors, drawing on the rich
tradition of discourse analysis informing Latin American linguistic theory.'

Sydney, Australia
