An overview of current corpus-based research on the Arabic language

This book demonstrates the advantage of a corpus based approach to Arabic, and presents an overview of current research on the Arabic language within corpus linguistics. Dealing not only with modern standard Arabic, the book also considers classical and colloquial forms.

With a range of international contributors presenting their experience of working with Arabic from a particular perspective, the book includes chapters on corpus building, the tools needed to explore the Arabic language, the use of corpora to explore the grammar of Arabic, and the study of discourse in Arabic.

* Takes a perspective-based approach to the practice of corpus-based research, covering corpus building and the use of corpus-query software tools to explore the Arabic language

* Presents detailed case studies of the application of methods to studies in Arabic grammar and Arabic discourse semantics

* Includes contributions from scholars based in Bahrain, Canada, Egypt France, the UK and the US
