Abstract: This area of research is probably the first of its kind in Bangla. In the broad spectrum of Linguistics, Corpus Linguistics is admittedly a new field of research with promising multi-directional future. Scholars across the world are now busy in giving it a new shape by chalking out its multiple application and research areas both in theoretical and applied aspects. If this work is viewed from this perspective it may be argued that the work has been in the right direction that paves out many future research areas.

In essence, the thesis aims at providing an empirical base for natural language processing in Bangla. The work is successful in the attempts to open up a new vista towards linguistic studies in Bangla. Tables, diagrams, appendices etc. are methodically designed and developed to support propositions and arguments.
