Abstract:

Introducing Electronic Text Analysis is a practical and much needed
introduction to bodies of linguistic data known as corpora. Written
specifically for students studying this topic for the first time, the book
begins with a discussion of the underlying principles of electronic text
analysis. It then examines how these corpora enhance our understanding of
literary and non-literary works.

In the first section the author introduces the concepts of concordance and
lexical frequency, concepts which are then applied to a range of areas of
language study. Key areas examined are the use of on-line corpora to
complement traditional stylistic analysis, and the ways in which methods
such as concordance and frequency counts can reveal a particular ideology
within a text.

The book also includes chapters on fields of study which have been
revolutionized by corpus techniques, such as translation studies, where the
encoding of cultural values by corpora can influence the translation
process, and language teaching, where data-driven learning is on the increase.

Presenting an accessible and thorough understanding of the underlying
principles of electronic text analysis, the book contains abundant
illustrative examples and a glossary with definitions of main concepts. It
is also supported by a companion website with links to on-line corpora so
that students can apply their knowledge to further study.
