Corpus linguistics is one of the most exciting approaches to studies in
applied linguistics today. From its quantitative beginnings it has grown to
become an essential aspect of research methodology in a range of fields,
often combining with text analysis, CDA, pragmatics and organizational
studies to reveal important new insights about how language works.

This important new book of specially commissioned chapters by academics
from across the applied linguistics spectrum demonstrates the range and
rigour of corpus research in applied linguistics. The volume captures some of
the most stimulating and significant developments in the field, including
chapters on language teaching, institutional and professional discourse,
English as an International Language, translation, forensics and media
studies. As a result it goes beyond traditional, limited presentations of corpus
work and shows how corpora inform a diverse and growing number of applied
linguistic domains.

'We may not be too far away from the day when reference to corpus data is a
sine qua non for any linguistic description and investigation. This book
provides an astonishingly successful step in this direction. The book bristles
with powerful insights, good practical ideas, exciting theory-building,
exemplifying on every page the practice of applied linguistics at its very best.'
Professor Ronald Carter, School of English Studies, University of Nottingham
