This book reflects the growing influence of corpus linguistics in a variety of areas such as lexicography, translation studies, genre analysis, and language teaching. The book is divided into two sections, the first on monolingual corpora and the second addressing multilingual corpora. The range of languages covered includes English, French and German, but also Chinese and some of the less widely known and less widely explored central and eastern European language. The chapters discuss: the relationship between methodology and theory; the importance of computers for linking textual segments, providing teaching tools, or translating texts; the significance of training corpora and human annotation; how corpus linguistic investigations can shed light on social and cultural aspects of language. Presenting fascinating research in the field, this book will be of interest to academics researching the applications of corpus linguistics in modern linguistic studies and the applications of corpus linguistics.
