English Corpus Linguistics in Japan
Edited by Toshio Saito, Junsaku Nakamura and Shunji Yamazaki

Amsterdam/New York, NY 2002. XI,340 pp. (Language and Computers 38)

ISBN: 90-420-1369-9	
Hardbound EUR 70,-/US-$ 65.50

The existence of corpus-based linguistic research in Japan has until
now mainly been hidden from the view of overseas researchers ? partly
by the language barrier, and partly by the continuing dominance of
generative grammar in Japan. At last, this volume lifts the veil to
reveal the current condition of corpus-based research in Japan.
English Corpus Linguistics in Japan contains a collection of twenty
papers written by Japanese linguists, reflecting the state of art in
English corpus linguistics in Japan. The volume covers an impressively
wide range, showcasing the diversity and creativity of corpus-based
research in this country, from studies drawing on the 'old faithful'
Brown and LOB Corpora as well as the more recent Frown, FLOB, the Bank
of English and the British National Corpus to studies based on more
specific historical, literary, spoken, and learner corpora; from
investigations of major levels of language description, including
prosody, lexis, morphology, syntax, and semantics to investigations of
language variation; from explorations of single variables to those of
multivariant dimensions; and from pedagogical applications to software
applications. The papers are grouped into four sections: 1)
Corpus-based studies of contemporary English, 2) Historical and
diachronic studies of English, 3) English corpora and English language
teaching, 4) Software for analyzing corpora.  This volume will inspire
still further corpus explorations in the future both in Japan and
abroad.
