Description:

Die Beiträge zur Dritten Internationalen Konferenz Grammatik und Korpora
(Mannheim 2009) thematisieren zum einen korpusgestützte grammatische
Untersuchungen zu verschiedenen Sprachen, zum anderen übereinzelsprachlich
ausgerichtete methodologisch-korpuslinguistische Ansätze. Einblicke in
laufende Forschungsvorhaben runden den Band ab, der sowohl für Grammatiker
mit Interesse an korpuslinguistischen Methoden als auch für Korpuslinguisten
gedacht ist, die grammatiktheoretische Fragen nicht ignorieren wollen.

The proceedings of the Third International Conference on Grammar and Corpora
(Mannheim 2009) present corpus-based studies on grammatical phenomena in
individual languages and contributions with a cross-linguistic and methodological
orientation.The volume will appeal both to researchers of grammar wishing to
remain abreast of the results of pertinent corpus-based research and to corpus
linguists wishing to broaden the theoretical context of their work.
