Book Information

   

Title: Corpus-based Studies in Language Use, Language Learning, and Language Documentation
Written By: Harald R. Baayen
Edited By: John Newman
Sally A. Rice
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=LC+73
Series Title: Language and Computers Vol. 73
Description:

This volume consists of selected papers from the 2009 meeting of the
American Association for Corpus Linguistics. The chapters cover aspects of
language use (usage-based accounts of morphology/syntax of English and
Tok Pisin), language learning (corpus-based learning of English, syntactic
development observable in a Learner Corpus of English, “core” vocabulary
items for learners of English) and language documentation (a new and
innovative usage-based frequency dictionary of English, proposals to broaden
the traditional understanding of a corpus in various directions, e.g.,
constructing a corpus of the content of Japanese 'manga' comics). Taken
together, the thirteen chapters represent a good cross-section of strands of
new work in corpus linguistics, as practised by international scholars working
on English and other languages.
