Title: Corpus Approaches to Evaluation
Subtitle: Phraseology and Evaluative Language
Written By: Susan Hunston
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415962025/
Series Title: Routledge Advances in Corpus Linguistics
Description:

This book applies a set of corpus investigation techniques to the study of
evaluation, or stance, or affect, in naturally-occurring discourse.
Evaluative language indicates opinions, attitudes, and judgments. It is an
important part of activities such as persuading someone that a particular
viewpoint is correct, or in constructing knowledge from a different number
of theories. This book argues that phraseology--regularities or patterns in
language identifiable from corpus studies--is important to the study of
evaluative language. It makes a number of more specific arguments: that
modal meaning is expressed through particular phrases and not only through
modal verbs; that figurative phrases are used to intensify evaluation; and
that patterns of use may be exploited to achieve an automatic
identification of evaluations. It also builds on the author’s previous work
in exploring how films and journalism use language and images to build
knowledge from ideas.
