Book Description

John Sinclair is one of the major figures in applied linguistics and his work is essential study for students.
This accessible book collects in one volume Sinclair's key papers on written discourse structure, lexis patterns, phraseology, corpus analysis, lexicography and linguistic theory from the 1990s. All the papers have been edited and updated for this book. The clear and accessible introduction helps students to navigate his key themes and arguments, making the volume an ideal companion for those coming to Sinclair's more recent writings for the first time.


' ... the book contains valuable insights from which both discourse analysts and corpus linguistics will benefit.' - BaaL News
