    John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in Corpus Linguistics: Corpus Linguistics at Work. Elena TOGNINI-BONELLI (Tuscan Word Centre) Studies in Corpus Linguistics 6 US & Canada: 1 58811 061 3 / USD 57.00 (Hardcover) Rest of world: 90 272 2276 2 / NLG 125.00 (Hardcover)

    The book offers a combined discussion of the main theoretical, methodological and application issues related to corpus work. Thus, starting from the definition of what is a corpus and why reading a corpus calls for a different methodology from reading a text, the underlying assumptions behind corpus work are discussed.

    The two main approaches to corpus work are discussed as the "corpus-based" and the "corpus-driven" approach and the theoretical positions underlying them explored in detail. The book adopts and exemplifies the parameters of the corpus-driven approach and posits a new unit of linguistic description defined systematically in the light of corpus evidence. The applications where the corpus-driven approach is exemplified are language teaching and contrastive linguistics. Alternating between practical examples and theoretical evaluation, the reader is led step-by-step to a detailed understanding of the issues involved in corpus work and, at the same time, tempted to explore for himself some of the major applications where a corpus-driven methodology can reveal unprecedented insights into linguistic patterning.

    John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in (Historical) Syntax

    200 Years of Syntax. A critical survey. Georgio GRAFFI (University of Verona) Studies in the History of the Language Sciences 98 US & Canada: 1 58811 052 4 / USD 114.00 (Hardcover) Rest of world: 90 272 4587 8 / NLG 250.00 (Hardcover)

    This book argues convincingly against the widespread opinion that very few syntactic studies were carried out before the 1950s. Relying on the detailed analysis of a large amount of original sources, it shows that syntactic matters were in fact carefully investigated throughout both the 19th century and during the first half of the 20th century. Moreover, it illustrates how the enormous development of syntactic research in the last fifty years has already condemned even several recent ideas and analyses to oblivion, and deeply influenced current research programs.

    The wealth of research undertaken over the last two centuries is presented here in a systematic way, taking as its starting point the relationship of syntax with psychology throughout this period. The critical ideas expressed in the text are based on a detailed illustration of the different syntactic models and analyses rather than on the polemics between the different schools.
