Title: Working with German Corpora
Subtitle: With a foreword by John Sinclair
Edited By: Bill Dodd

The essays in this volume, written by Germanists from Britain, Ireland, the
USA and Australia, illustrate the enormous potential which corpus-based
work has for German Studies as a whole and the rich diversity of work
currently being undertaken. Many contributions contain new research data,
and topics covered include areas as diverse as literary studies,
translation studies, language learning applications, specialist registers,
descriptive and critical linguistics, spoken language, historical
linguistics and corpus construction. A detailed introduction explains basic
concepts, methods, and applications of corpus-based work.
