Abstract:

This volume deals with different aspects of the creation and use of
multilingual corpora. The term 'multilingual corpus' is understood in a
comprehensive sense, meaning any systematic collection of empirical language
data enabling linguists to carry out analyses of multilingual individuals,
multilingual societies or multilingual communication. The individual
contributions are thus concerned with a variety of spoken and written corpora
ranging from learner and attrition corpora, language contact corpora and
interpreting corpora to comparable and parallel corpora. The overarching aim
of the volume is first to take stock of the variety of existing multilingual
corpora, documenting possible corpus designs and uses, second to discuss
methodological and technological challenges in the creation and analysis of
multilingual corpora, and third to provide examples of linguistic analyses
that were carried out on the basis of multilingual corpora.
