Title: Applied Corpus Linguistics
Subtitle: A Multidimensional Perspective
Edited By: ThomasA.Upton
Series Title: Language and Computers Vol. 52
Description:

This book will be of particular interest to anyone interested in the
application of corpus linguistic techniques to language study and
instruction. This volume includes selected papers from the Fourth North
American Symposium, held in Indianapolis and hosted by the Indiana Center
for Intercultural Communication at Indiana University Purdue University in
Indianapolis (IUPUI) in November, 2002. These papers--from authors
representing eight countries including the U.S., Belgium, China, France,
Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Spain--provide a wide range of views
of and approaches to corpus linguistics. Topics range from theory and
analysis to classroom application, and include the study of oral discourse
as well as the study of written discourse, including internet-based
discourse. Consequently, this volume is divided into two sections. The
first section focuses on the use of corpus linguistics in the analysis of
spoken and written discourse; the second section focuses on the direct
pedagogical application of corpus linguistics, reflecting the applied
foundation of this branch of linguistics.
