Abstract:

Corpus Linguistics in Literary Analysis provides a theoretical introduction
to corpus stylistics and also demonstrates its application by presenting
corpus stylistic analyses of literary texts and corpora.

The first part of the book addresses theoretical issues such as the
relationship between subjectivity and objectivity in corpus linguistic
analyses, criteria for the evaluation of results from corpus linguistic
analyses and also discusses units of meaning in language.

The second part of the book takes this theory and applies it to Northanger
Abbey by Jane Austen and to two corpora consisting of 1) Austen's six
novels and 2) texts that are contemporary with Austen. The analyses
demonstrate the impact of various features of text on literary meanings and
how corpus tools can extract new critical angles.

This book will be a key read for upper level undergraduates and
postgraduates working in corpus linguistics and in stylistics on
linguistics and language studies courses.
