Title: Meaningful Texts
Subtitle: The Extraction of Semantic Information from Monolingual and Multilingual Corpora
Edited By: Pernilla Danielsson
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/Books/detail.aspx?ReturnURL=/Search/default.aspx&CountryID=1&ImprintID
Series Title: Corpus and Discourse
Description:

This book reflects the growing influence of corpus linguistics in a variety
of areas such as lexicography, translation studies, genre analysis, and
language teaching.

The book is divided into two sections, the first on monolingual corpora and
the second addressing multilingual corpora. The range of languages covered
includes English, French and German, but also Chinese and some of the less
widely known and less widely explored central and eastern European
language. The chapters discuss:

- the relationship between methodology and theory
- the importance of computers for linking textual segments, providing
teaching tools, or translating texts
- the significance of training corpora and human annotation
- how corpus linguistic investigations can shed light on social and
cultural aspects of language

Presenting fascinating research in the field, this book will be of interest
to academics researching the applications of corpus linguistics in modern
linguistic studies and the applications of corpus linguistics.
