Abstract:

Corpus Linguistics in Literary Analysis provides a theoretical introductionto corpus stylistics and also demonstrates its application by presentingcorpus stylistic analyses of literary texts and corpora.

The first part of the book addresses theoretical issues such as therelationship between subjectivity and objectivity in corpus linguisticanalyses, criteria for the evaluation of results from corpus linguisticanalyses and also discusses units of meaning in language.

The second part of the book takes this theory and applies it to NorthangerAbbey by Jane Austen and to two corpora consisting of 1) Austen's sixnovels and 2) texts that are contemporary with Austen. The analysesdemonstrate the impact of various features of text on literary meanings andhow corpus tools can extract new critical angles.

This book will be a key read for upper level undergraduates andpostgraduates working in corpus linguistics and in stylistics onlinguistics and language studies courses.
