The use of corpus data in languages other than English has become increasingly important in recent years, and as a result has given rise to a growing body of research and applications in multilingual corpus linguistics. This book collects together a selection of papers which have made use of multilingual corpus data in language teaching, as well as linguistic research.
The corpora described in this book include data in a variety of languages, including Swedish, Chinese, German and Italian, and the contributors include well known scholars in the fields of corpus linguistics and corpus-based language teaching.
