Title: Trust The Text
Subtitle: Language, Corpus and Discourse
Written By: John McH. Sinclair
Edited By: Ronald Carter
Description:

John Sinclair is one of the most influential figures in world linguistics, an innovator who revolutionized the study of spoken discourse and pioneered corpus-based research.

In this definitive collection, papers reflecting his most important work of the past decade have been collated and organized into meaningful sections, providing a clear statement of Sinclair's thinking and research.

* Foundations outlines the major theoretical principles on which subsequent chapters are constructed;
* The organization of text traces the development of Sinclair's insights into the relationship between text structure and dialogue;
* Lexis and grammar presents core papers on the description of vocabulary, its relationship with grammar and the role of corpus analysis in describing lexical patterns.

Featuring introductions and summaries of key arguments, Trust the Text is an essential addition to any linguist's bookshelf.
