Abstract:

Corpus and Context explores the relationship between corpus linguistics and
pragmatics by discussing possible frameworks for analysing utterance
function on the basis of spoken corpora. The book articulates the
challenges and opportunities associated with a change of focus in corpus
research, from lexical to functional units, from concordance lines to
extended stretches of discourse, and from the purely textual to multi-modal
analysis of spoken corpus data. Drawing on a number of spoken corpora
including the five million word Cambridge and Nottingham Corpus of
Discourse in English (CANCODE, funded by CUP (c)), a specific speech act
function is being explored using different approaches and different levels
of analysis. This involves a close analysis of contextual variables in
relation to lexico-grammatical and discoursal patterns that emerge from the
corpus data, as well as a wider discussion of the role of context in spoken
corpus research.
