Corpus Linguistics

An Introduction

«There are useful new sections on multilingual corpus alignment and paralled concordancing, which reflect the increasing importance of this type of corpus work ! The final chapter has been completely re-written ! Clearly delineated section headings, end of chapter summaries, study questions and comprehensive suggestions for further reading making it user-friendly for student use. Unfamiliar terminology (indicated in bold text) is explained by the end glossary or alongside in the text itself, and there are useful up-to-date appendices on corpora and software for the corpus research ! The book is attractively and well written, explaining complex issues clearly and succintly, and making effective use of illustrative diagrams, tables, and examples. Its tone is approachable and occasionally conversational, which will appeal to those looking for an accessible and, most importantly, a readable introduction to corpus linguistics ! McEnery and Wilson predict that corpus linguistics is moving with such momentum that another new edition may be required in a few years. If they maintain their 'fingers on the pulse' 'hands-on' approach to corpus studies, I expect the book will figure prominently on course reading lists for many years to come. Literary and Linguistic Computing praise for the first edition: Important [addition] to the fast growing literature in corpus linguistics, and should be read by anyone interested in utilization of large-scale corpora in linguistic research.

TB – 16.11.2004

– Denne boken er om korpuslingvistikk - et område innenfor lingvistikken der man bruker datamaskin til å analysere språklig materiale. Det er et område som stadig er i vekst, spesielt pga datamaskinens raske utvikling. Store tekstmaterialer blir puttet inn i software, og din oppgave er å bruke kunnskap du får fra denne og andre bøker pluss nødvendig elektronisk redskap til å få den informasjonen du trenger - enten det dreier seg om forskning på syntaks, semantikk eller pragmatikk. Denne boken tar deg med inn i korpuslingvistikkens verden: historien, hva slags korpus som finnes, hva man kan benytte dem til, hvordan framtiden blir osv.
