  General view: The author makes an effort to interweave computer and language corpus in an interactive interface with a goal for developing new systems and resources for second language teaching, compiling dictionaries with digitized corpora, introducing new approached for dialects study, designing robust systems for word sense understanding, and developing new method for machine translation.
  The primary goal of the book is to make people aware about the functional and referential benefits of language corpora in the works of applied linguistics. The academic relevance of this book may be attested in its direct focus on Indian context of applied linguistic works as well as in its sincere appeal for redirecting the focus of works of the Indian applied linguists towards this new approach for the benefit of the discipline.
  The issues addressed in this book have academic and functional relevance in the area of corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, applied linguistics, language technology, cognitive linguistics, language processing, as well as in mainstream linguistics. It is enriched with reference to the recent works carried out in advanced languages at various parts of the world. The book will help the readers to know how novel approaches are used to make valuable improvements over traditional systems and techniques normally used in applied linguistics. 
  The book is suitable to be used as a course book both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It can also be used as a reference book for teachers employed in language teaching and researchers working in areas of applied linguistics and language technology. Also people working in other areas will find this book useful for information, observation, and interpretation.
   
   
  Target Readers: Undergraduate and postgraduate students, University teachers, research scholars, corpus linguists, language technologists, first and second language teachers, dialectologists, lexicographers, terminographers, lexical semanticists, machine translators, and people working in allied disciplines.
