Corpus Linguistics
Investigating Language Structure and Use
Douglas Biber, Northern Arizona University

Randi Reppen, Northern Arizona University

This book is about investigating the way people use language in speech
and writing. It introduces the corpus-based approach to the study of
language, based on analysis of large databases of real language
examples and illustrates exciting new findings about language and the
different ways that people speak and write. The book is important both
for its step-by-step descriptions of research methods and for its
findings about grammar and vocabulary, language use, language
learning, and differences in language use across texts and user
groups.

approach; PART I. Investigating the use of language features:
