Abstract:

Much of the “new wave” of contrastive linguistics has focused on aspects ofthe grammatical system, examining phonological, morphological, lexical andsyntactic similarities and differences across two or more languages. As withmany other areas of linguistics, there exists a renewed interest in discourseperspectives in the study of languages in contrast, and much of that work usescorpora and corpus linguistics techniques to study language.

This volume provides examples of cutting-edge research in contrastive analysesof different languages. The papers have been organized around four themes:studies of discourse markers; information structure; registers and genres; andphraseology. The languages included (Dutch, English, French, German, Italian,Spanish and Swedish) cover a range of European languages, showing not onlydiversity in their grammatical structures, but also subtle differences thatare the focus of many of the papers. The techniques used, from concordancingand careful annotation to painstaking qualitative analysis, showcase thevariety of approaches to the study of languages in contrast and includecontributions from discourse, corpus and functional perspectives.
