Abstract:

This book is a collection of papers using samples of real language data
(corpora) to explore variation in the use of English. This collection
celebrates the achievements of Toshio Saito, a pioneer in corpus linguistics
within Japan and founder of the Japan Association for English Corpus Studies
(JAECS).

The main aims throughout the collection are to present practical solutions for
methodological and interpretational problems common in such research, and to
make the research methods and issues as accessible as possible, to educate and
inspire future researchers. Together, the papers represent many different
dimensions of variation, including: differences in (frequency of) use under
different linguistic conditions; differences between styles or registers of
use; change over time; differences between regional varieties; differences
between social groups; and differences in use by one individual on different
occasions. The papers are grouped into four sections: studies considering
methodological problems in the use of real language samples; studies
describing features of language usage in different linguistic environments in
modern English; studies following change over time; and case studies
illustrating variation in usage for different purposes, or by different groups
or individuals, in society.
