Abstract:

Please note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

Corpus linguistics uses large electronic databases of language to examine 
hypotheses about language use. These can be tested scientifically with 
computerised analytical tools, without the researcher's preconceptions 
influencing their conclusions. For this reason, corpus linguistics is a popular 
and expanding area of study. "Contemporary Corpus Linguistics" presents a 
comprehensive survey of the ways in which corpus linguistics is being used 
by researchers. Written by internationally renowned linguists, this volume of 
seventeen introductory chapters aims to provide a snapshot of the field of 
corpus linguistics. The contributors present accessible, yet detailed, 
analyses of recent methods and theory in Corpus Linguistics, ways of 
analysing corpora, and recent applications in translation, stylistics, discourse 
analysis and language teaching.  The book represents the best of current 
practice in Corpus Linguistics, and as a one volume reference will be 
invaluable to students and researchers looking for an overview of the field.

"The inclusion of Contemporary in the title is no idle boast - all of these 
papers take corpus linguistics forward in exciting and challenging ways."
Michael Hoey, Baines Professor of English language, University of Liverpool, 
UK
