Title: Corpus Linguistics
Subtitle: Readings in a Widening Discipline
Edited By: Geoffrey Sampson
Diana McCarthy
Description:

Corpus Linguistics seeks to provide a complete catalogue of a given
language, and to use this empirical data to test language hypotheses.
These days corpora are being used to advance virtually every aspect of
language study, from computer processing techniques such as machine
translation, to literary stylistics, social aspects of language use, and
improved language-teaching methods.

This volume reprints forty-two articles on corpus linguistics, which
comprehensively illustrate the directions in which the subject is
developing. It includes articles that are already recognized as classics,
and others which deserve to become so, supplemented with editorial
introductions relating the international contributions to the field as a
whole.

This collection of readings will be useful to students of corpus
linguistics at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well as
academics researching this fascinating area of linguistics.
