Much of the “new wave” of contrastive linguistics has focused on aspects of
the grammatical system, examining phonological, morphological, lexical and
syntactic similarities and differences across two or more languages. As with
many other areas of linguistics, there exists a renewed interest in discourse
perspectives in the study of languages in contrast, and much of that work uses
corpora and corpus linguistics techniques to study language.

This volume provides examples of cutting-edge research in contrastive analyses
of different languages. The papers have been organized around four themes:
studies of discourse markers; information structure; registers and genres; and
phraseology. The languages included (Dutch, English, French, German, Italian,
Spanish and Swedish) cover a range of European languages, showing not only
diversity in their grammatical structures, but also subtle differences that
are the focus of many of the papers. The techniques used, from concordancing
and careful annotation to painstaking qualitative analysis, showcase the
variety of approaches to the study of languages in contrast and include
contributions from discourse, corpus and functional perspectives.
