Abstract:

Textual Patterns introduces corpus resources, tools and analytic frameworks
of central relevance to language teachers and teacher educators.
Specifically it shows how key word analysis, combined with the systematic
study of vocabulary and genre, can form the basis for a corpus informed
approach to language teaching. 

The first part of the book gives the reader a strong grounding in the way
in which language teachers can use corpus analysis tools (wordlists,
concordances, key words) to describe language patterns in general and text
patterns in particular. The second section presents a series of case
studies which show how a key word/corpus informed approach to language
education can work in practice. The case studies include: General language
education (i.e. students in national education systems and those following
international examination programmes), foreign languages for academic
purposes, literature in language education, business and professional
communication, and cultural studies in language education.

"The keyword is a powerful tool for assessing and understanding texts; this
book gives a clear and detailed description of its possibilities, mainly
through a series of convincing applications to a wide range of texts.
Language learners and teachers should find full practical support here for
their own investigations, provided by two pioneers of the harnessing of
computer corpora to language learning." 
John Sinclair, The Tuscan Word Centre 

"This book is a delight to read. It is not only an exceptionally clear and
cogent account of the procedures of corpus analysis in general, but a
convincing demonstration of how revealing these procedures can be when
applied to particular texts, literary and non-literary, by focusing
attention on features of potential significance for interpretation. Anybody
working with texts should make it a priority to read this one." 
Henry G. Widdowson, University of Vienna
