Abstract:

This volume consists of selected papers from the 2009 meeting of the 
American Association for Corpus Linguistics. The chapters cover aspects of 
language use (usage-based accounts of morphology/syntax of English and 
Tok Pisin), language learning (corpus-based learning of English, syntactic 
development observable in a Learner Corpus of English, "core" vocabulary 
items for learners of English) and language documentation (a new and 
innovative usage-based frequency dictionary of English, proposals to broaden 
the traditional understanding of a corpus in various directions, e.g., 
constructing a corpus of the content of Japanese 'manga' comics). Taken 
together, the thirteen chapters represent a good cross-section of strands of 
new work in corpus linguistics, as practised by international scholars working 
on English and other languages.
