Book Information


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

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.
