Title: Quantitative Methods in Cognitive Semantics: Corpus-Driven Approaches
Edited By: Dylan Glynn
Kerstin Fischer
Series Title: Cognitive Linguistics Research [CLR] 46

In line with the increasing use of empirical methods in Cognitive Linguistics, the
current volume explores the uses of quantitative, in particular corpus-driven,
techniques for the study of meaning. It shows how these techniques contribute
to the core theoretical issues of Cognitive Semantics as well as how they inform
semantic analysis. The research presented in the volume constitutes an
important step towards an Empirical Cognitive Semantics.
