Abstract:

This volume deals with different aspects of the creation and use ofmultilingual corpora. The term 'multilingual corpus' is understood in acomprehensive sense, meaning any systematic collection of empirical languagedata enabling linguists to carry out analyses of multilingual individuals,multilingual societies or multilingual communication. The individualcontributions are thus concerned with a variety of spoken and written corporaranging from learner and attrition corpora, language contact corpora andinterpreting corpora to comparable and parallel corpora. The overarching aimof the volume is first to take stock of the variety of existing multilingualcorpora, documenting possible corpus designs and uses, second to discussmethodological and technological challenges in the creation and analysis ofmultilingual corpora, and third to provide examples of linguistic analysesthat were carried out on the basis of multilingual corpora.
