About the Book

Corpora—large collections of written and/or spoken text stored and accessed electronically—provide the means of investigating language that is of growing importance academically and professionally. Corpora are now routinely used in the following fields:

  • the production of dictionaries and other reference materials;
  • the development of aids to translation;
  • language teaching materials;
  • the investigation of ideologies and cultural assumptions;
  • natural language processing; and
  • the investigation of all aspects of linguistic behaviour, including vocabulary, grammar and pragmatics.

This new six-volume collection from Routledge brings together the most significant articles in the field of corpora, and is arranged thematically. The set also includes a new introduction by the editors, a chronological table and a comprehensive index. The Major Work is organized as follows:

  • Volume 1. Foundations—the history of corpus linguistics, 1955–80;
  • Volume 2. Setting up corpora;
  • Volume 3. Working with corpora;
  • Volume 4. Corpus linguistics, lexicology and language teaching;
  • Volume 5. The theoretical foundation of corpus linguistuics;
  • Volume 6. Corpus linguistics and natural language processing.
