Abstract:

John Sinclair is one of the most influential figures in world linguistics, an
innovator who revolutionized the study of spoken discourse and pioneered
corpus-based research.

In this definitive collection, papers reflecting his most important work of the
past decade have been collated and organized into meaningful sections,
providing a clear statement of Sinclair's thinking and research.

* Foundations outlines the major theoretical principles on which subsequent
chapters are constructed;
* The organization of text traces the development of Sinclair's insights into
the relationship between text structure and dialogue;
* Lexis and grammar presents core papers on the description of vocabulary, its
relationship with grammar and the role of corpus analysis in describing lexical
patterns.

Featuring introductions and summaries of key arguments, Trust the Text is an
essential addition to any linguist's bookshelf.
