The Routledge Applied Corpus Linguistics Series is a series of monograph studies exhibiting cutting-edge research in the field of corpus linguistics.
Corpus linguistics is one of the most dynamic and rapidly developing areas of the field of language studies and it is difficult to see a future for empirical language research where results are not replicable by reference to corpus data. The aim of the series is to showcase the latest research in the field of applied language studies where corpus findings are at the forefront of the research.
This series was co-founded by Ronald Carter (1947-2018).
If you are interested in contributing to this series, please contact the Series Editors, Michael McCarthy and Anne O’Keeffe ([email protected]).
