Book Information

   

Title: Corpus-Based Language Studies
Subtitle: An Advanced Resource Book
Edited By: AnthonyMarkMcEnery
Series Title: Routledge Applied Linguistics
Description:

Routledge Applied Linguistics is a series of comprehensive resource books,
providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced
study in the core areas of English language and Applied Linguistics.

Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections,
enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline.
Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends
readers' techniques of analysis through practical application. Section B,
Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and
discusses their contribution to the field. Section C, Exploration, builds
on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks
around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more
actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own
research responses. Throughout the book, topics are revisited, extended,
interwoven and deconstructed, with the reader's understanding strengthened
by tasks and follow-up questions.

Corpus Based Language Studies:
*Presents corpus based investigations in specific areas of linguistics
in-depth, including 'how to' and 'why.'
*Covers the major approaches to the use of corpus data
*Gathers together influential readings from key names in the discipline,
including: Biber, Widdowson, Sinclair, Carter and McCarthy

Written by experienced teachers and researchers in the field, Corpus Based
language Studies is an essential resource for students and researchers of
Applied Linguistics.
