Book Information


Title: Corpus-Based Approaches to Sentence Structures
Edited By: Toshihiro Takagaki
Susumu Zaima
Yoichiro Turuga
Francisco Moreno-Fernández
Yuji Kawaguchi
Series Title: Usage-Based Linguistic Informatics 2

This is the second volume of the series "Usage-Based Linguistic
Informatics", a product of the 21st century COE program held at Tokyo
University of Foreign Studies (TUFS). The project has an objective to
realize an integration of theoretical and applied linguistics on the basis
of computer sciences. With a view to practically applying the results of
linguistic analysis to language education, the promotion of individual
language research has become a high-priority issue. A new field of
linguistic research is intended to be developed by elucidating the state of
linguistic usage based on the analysis of large amounts of linguistic data.
The volume, thus, consists mainly of language-specific corpus-based
analyses on sentence structures in ten different languages such as
Nuuchahnulth, Korean, Chinese, Malay, Turkish, Arabic, Russian, French,
English and Spanish. It also includes papers that deal with various
theoretical issues in contrastive linguistics and typology.
