It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

New from Cambridge University Press!


Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Quantitative Corpus Linguistics with R
Subtitle: A Practical Introduction
Written By: Stefan Th. Gries

The first textbook of its kind, Quantitative Corpus Linguistics with R
demonstrates how to use the open source programming language R for corpus
linguistic analyses. Computational and corpus linguists doing corpus work
will find that R provides an enormous range of functions that currently
require several programs to achieve – searching and processing corpora,
arranging and outputting the results of corpus searches, statistical
evaluation, and graphing.
