Abstract:

Approximately a quarter of a century ago, the Multi-Dimensional (MD)
approach—one of the most powerful (and controversial) methods in Corpus
Linguistics—saw its first book-length treatment. In its eleven chapters, this
volume presents all new contributions covering a wide range of written and
spoken registers, such as movies, music, magazine texts, student writing,
social media, letters to the editor, and reports, in different languages
(English, Spanish, Portuguese) and contexts (engineering, journalism, the
classroom, the entertainment industry, the Internet, etc.). The book also
includes a personal account of the development of the method by its creator,
Doug Biber, an introduction to MD statistics, as well as an application of MD
analysis to corpus design. The book should be essential reading to anyone with
an interest in how texts, genres, and registers are used in society, what
their lexis and grammar look like, and how they are interrelated.
