This volume considers, from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, how pragmatic phenomena can be investigated using corpus linguistics. It includes individual contributions based in the study of German, English and Romance language and literature. They discuss corpus pragmatic procedures, results and infrastructures from research relating to Critical Discourse Analysis, Foucault's linguistics of discourse, research on speech acts, computer linguistics and historical pragmatics. The result is a comprehensive overview of the present state of debate on corpus linguistics in important areas of today's pragmatics.
