This book showcases sixteen papers from the landmark 30th conference of
the International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English (ICAME)
held at Lancaster University in May 2009. The theme of the book 'looking
back, moving forward' follows that of the conference where participants
reflected on the extraordinary growth of corpus linguistics over three decades
as well as looking ahead to yet further developments in the future. A separate
volume, appearing as an e-publication in the VARIENG series from the
University of Helsinki focuses on the methodological and historical
dimensions of corpus linguistics.

This volume features papers on present-day English and the recent history of
English via the increasing availability of corpora covering the last hundred
years or so of the language. Contributors to the volume study numerous
topics and datasets including recent diachronic change, regional and new
Englishes, learner corpora, Academic written English, parallel and translation
corpora, corpora of popular music pop lyrics and computer-mediated
communication. Overall the volume represents the state of the art in English
corpus linguistics and a peek into the future directions for the field.
