Title: Keyness in Texts
Edited By: Marina Bondi
Mike Scott
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SCL%2041
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 41
Description:

This is corpus linguistics with a text linguistic focus. The volume concerns
lexical inequality, the fact that some words and phrases share the quality of
being key -- and thereby reflect or promote important themes -- in some
textual
contexts, while others do not. The patterning of words which differ in their
centrality to text meaning is of increasing interest to corpus linguistics.
At the
same time software resources are yielding increasingly more detailed ways of
identifying and studying the linkages between key words and phrases in text
databases. This volume brings together work from some of the leading
researchers in this field. It presents thirteen studies organized in three
sections,
the first containing a series of studies exploring the nature of keyness
itself,
then a set of five studies looking at keyness in specific discourse
contexts, and
then three studies with an educational focus.
