This book represents a new direction at the interface between the
fields of stylistics and corpus linguistics, namely the use of a
corpus methodology to investigate the ways in which people's words and
thoughts are presented in written narratives. A 260,000 word
electronic corpus of late 20th century written texts, including
fiction, news reports and (auto)biographies is analysed by the
authors, providing a detailed account of new theoretical insights,
comparisons between different text types and detailed accounts of
individual texts.

Lingfield(s):	Text/Corpus Linguistics
