Abstract:

In this book the web's controversial status as a corpus is investigated on
both theoretical and applicative grounds. While the notion of a linguistic
corpus as a body of texts rests on some related issues such as finite size,
balance, permanence, the very idea of a web of texts brings about notions
of non-finiteness, flexibility, provisionality. It is against this
background that the book revisits key issues in corpus linguistics from
the perspective of the web and explores the new issues that the emerging
notion of the web as corpus possibly raises.

The book is part of a project involving Editori Laterza and the
Dipartimento S.A.G.E.O. (Studi Anglo-Germanici e dell'Europa Orientale) at
the University of Bari, Italy. The PDF version of the book can be
downloaded free of charge from the publisher's website:
