Abstract:

This volume provides an overview of four currently booming areas in the
discipline of corpus linguistics. The first section is concerned with
studies of the history and development of morphological and syntactic
phenomena in English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese. The second section
contains case studies investigating the functions and contexts of use of
different morphological and syntactic forms in English, Spanish, Russian,
and Mandarin Chinese. The third section contains studies in the field of
genre and register from settings as diverse as health, call center,
academic, and legal discourse. The final section features papers refining
existing, and exploring new, corpus-linguistic methods: dispersions, text
mining, corpus similarity, as well as the development of extraction
patterns and the evaluation of tagging methods.
