Title: Perspectives on Corpus Linguistics
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/scl.48
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 48
Description:

"Perspectives on Corpus Linguistics" is a collection of interviews with
fourteen well-known researchers in the field of linguistics. Each interview
consists of a set of ten questions: the first seven are common to all contributors
while the last three are connected to the research experience of each guest. In
the general questions, the invited scholars explore (sometimes controversial)
topics such as the concept of representativeness, the role of intuition and the
status of Corpus Linguistics. In the specific questions, they provide a thorough
discussion of materials and methods in corpus research as well as theoretical
and applied perspectives on the use of corpora in language studies. Whether
experts or novices, the volume should be of interest to all those who want to
learn about corpus linguistics and carry out research in this fascinating and
growing area.
