Summary

Corpus Linguistics for Grammar provides an accessible and practical introduction to the use of corpus linguistics to analyse grammar, demonstrating the wider application of corpus data and providing readers with all the skills and information they need to carry out their own corpus-based research.

This book:

  • explores the kinds of corpora available and the tools which can be used to analyse them;
  • looks at specific ways in which features of grammar can be explored using a corpus through analysis of areas such as frequency and colligation;
  • contains exercises, worked examples and suggestions for further practice with each chapter;
  • provides three illustrative examples of potential research projects in the areas of English Literature, TESOL and English Language.

Corpus Linguistics for Grammar is essential reading for students undertaking corpus-based research into grammar, or studying within the areas of English Language, Literature, Applied Linguistics and TESOL.
