Title: Corpus, Cognition and Causative Constructions
Written By: Gaëtanelle Gilquin
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SCL%2039
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 39
Description:

English causative constructions with cause, get, have
and make are often mistakenly presented as (quasi-)synonymous
and more or less interchangeable. This book demonstrates the value of
corpus linguistics in identifying the syntactic, semantic, lexical and
stylistic features that are distinctive for each of these constructions. It
also underlines the usefulness of providing corpus studies with a solid
theoretical foundation by showing how corpus linguistics can be fruitfully
combined with cognitive linguistics, which is used both as a starting point
for the analysis (top-down approach) and as a framework within which to
interpret the corpus results (bottom-up approach). From a methodological
point of view, the study illustrates the complementarity of corpus and
elicitation data, and offers tools and methods that could be used to
investigate other syntactic structures. Finally, the book also has a
pedagogical dimension in that it examines how the research findings can be
applied to foreign language teaching.
