Abstract:

This book reflects the growing influence of corpus linguistics in a variety
of areas such as lexicography, translation studies, genre analysis and
language teaching. 

The book is divided into two sections, the first on monolingual corpora and
the second addressing multilingual corpora. Although the methods used to
examine these two types of corpora may differ, the contributors reveal that
there are many similarities between the two. The chapters discuss: 

* the relationship between methodology and theory
* the importance of computers for linking textual segments, providing
teaching tools or translating  texts
* the significance of 'training corpora' and human annotation
* how corpus linguistic investigations can shed light on social and
cultural aspects of language
* the importance of corpus linguistics in modern linguistic studies

Presenting fascinating research in the field, this book will be of interest
to academics researching the applications of corpus linguistics.
