Abstract:

This work is designed, firstly, to both provoke theoretical discussion and
serve as a practical guide for researchers and students in the field of
corpus linguistics and, secondly, to offer a wide-ranging introduction to
corpus techniques for practitioners of discourse studies. It delves into a
wide variety of language topics and areas including metaphor, irony,
evaluation, (im)politeness, stylistics, language change and
sociopolitical issues. Each chapter begins with an outline of an area,
followed by case studies which attempt both to shed light on particular
themes in this area and to demonstrate the methodologies which might
be fruitfully employed to investigate them. The chapters conclude with
suggestions on activities which the readers may wish to undertake
themselves. An Appendix contains a list of currently available resources
for corpus research which were used or mentioned in the book.
