These specially-commissioned studies cover corpus-informed approaches toresearching, teaching and learning English for Specific Purposes (ESP). Thecorpora used range from very large published corpora to small tailor-madecollections of written and spoken text, as well as parallel and contrastivecorpora, in both the hard and softer sciences. Designed to tackle theproblems faced by a variety of first- and second-language ESP users(specialised translators, undergraduates, junior and experienced researchers,and language trainers), the breadth of approaches enables treatment ofissues central to ESP and corpus research, from corpus compilation andanalysis to new applications and data-driven learning. The first full-lengthbook on applied corpus use in France, "Corpus-Informed Research andLearning in ESP" will be of interest not only to those working in the Frenchcontext, but to a wide variety of language professionals - teachers,researchers or course designers - in many countries looking at ESP fromdifferent linguistic, cultural and educational perspectives.
