Abstract:

The chapters in this collected volume illuminate the dynamic success storyof English corpus linguistics over the past few decades. The book isorganised in three parts. The chapters in Part I set the scene by addressingfundamental issues such as the balance between automated and manualanalyses, and the urgent call for more communication and collaborationacross subjects and research areas. The studies in Part II highlight patternsin Present-day English from a cross-linguistic perspective, and identify andanalyse stylistic trends in recent English. Part III is devoted to aspects of therich variation and long-term change characteristic of early English.Two themes cut across the chapters in the book. One of them is theimpressive volume and diversity of digitised material available for Englishcorpus linguists today and the issues that arise for researchers wishing tocombine different data sources in their analyses. The other theme concernsthe benefits that advances made in English corpus linguistics may offer toother disciplines.
