Title: Using Corpora in Discourse Analysis
Written By: Paul Baker
Description:

This book examines approaches to carrying out discourse analysis (DA) using
techniques that are grounded in corpus linguistics. Assuming no prior
knowledge of corpora, the book examines and evaluates a variety of
corpus-based methodologies including: collocations, keyness, concordances,
dispersion plots, building and annotating corpora. Illustrated with a
number of real-life examples of corpus-based DA from a range of sources and
covering a variety of subjects, this is an informative introduction to
using corpus linguistics as a methodology in discourse analysis.
