Description: The International Journal of Corpus Linguistics (IJCL) seeks to publish research that views language as a social phenomenon that can be investigated empirically on the basis of authentic spoken texts. Corpus linguistics specifies corpus design in respect to research interests, provides computational methods of extracting linguistic knowledge, and conceives tools to validate the accuracy of linguistic description. IJCL will discuss these aspects. IJCL aims to conciliate the expectations of language industry with the goals of academic linguistics research. It is the linguistic knowledge extracted from corpora that determines the performance of any NLP application. IJCL is a forum to exchange and share experience, expertise, visions as well as information on resources and tools. IJCL will also feature book reviews abstracts of relevant articles in leading journals and in important conference proceedings, reports on focal language and language technology centres, both in the academic and industrial field.
