Title: Multifactorial Analysis in Corpus Linguistics
Written By: Stefan Th. Gries
Series Title: Open Linguistics
Description:

This book presents a novel analysis of Particle Movement from the point of
view of psycholinguistics.

Stefan Gries argues that corpus-based approaches to the study of Particle
Movement are superior to those used in traditional grammar, in that they
can tell us more about the internal workings of the brain. These new
approaches enable Particle Movement to be described in greater detail, and
to be compared more easily. Gries also argues that it is possible to
predict with a high degree of accuracy which of two word orders native
speakers will subconsciously choose in natural speech.

As well as examining the methodology of Particle Movement, the study
addresses more theoretical questions. It is argued that some theories of
how language is produced by the brain cannot explain the results found in
practical studies, and Gries therefore looks at the relative merits of more
interactive models of language production.

This book will be useful to postgraduates and academics researching
cognitive linguistics and psycholinguistics.
