Book Information


Title: The Routledge Handbook of Corpus Linguistics
Edited By: Anne O'Keeffe
Michael McCarthy
Series Title: Routledge Handbooks in Applied Linguistics

The Routledge Handbook of Corpus Linguistics provides a timely overview of
a dynamic and rapidly growing area with a widely applied methodology.
Through the electronic analysis of large bodies of text, corpus linguistics
demonstrates and supports linguistic statements and assumptions. In recent
years it has seen an ever-widening application in a variety of fields:
computational linguistics, discourse analysis, forensic linguistics,
pragmatics and translation studies.

Bringing together experts in the key areas of development and change, the
handbook is structured around six themes which take the reader through
building and designing a corpus to using a corpus to study literature and
translation. Each theme is preceded by a substantial overview of the area
putting the subsequent themes into perspective.

A comprehensive introduction covers the historical development of the field
and its growing influence and application in other areas. Structured around
five headings for ease of reference, each contribution includes further
reading sections with three to five key texts highlighted and annotated to
facilitate further exploration of the topics. The Routledge Handbook of
Corpus Linguistics is the ideal resource for advanced undergraduates and
