It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Series Title: Corpus and Discourse

Corpus linguistics is often regarded as a methodology in its own right, but
little attention has been given to the theoretical perspectives from which
the subject can be approached. The present book contributes to filling this
gap. Bringing together original contributions by internationally renowned
authors, the chapters include coverage of the lexical priming theory,

illustrated and complemented by case studies using data from large corpora
such as the BNC, smaller purpose-built corpora, and Google searches.
