Description:

This readable introductory textbook presents a concise survey of corpus
linguistics. The first section of the book introduces the key concepts in
corpus linguistics and provides a brief history of the discipline. The
second section expands the study of language and shows how corpus
linguistics can advance our study of words and meaning, the benefits of
studying the corpora, and how meaning can best be conceptualised.
Explaining corpus linguistics in easy to understand terms, and including a
glossary and suggestions for further reading, this book will be useful to
students trying to get a grasp on this subject.
