Series Title: English Corpus Linguistics
Description:

This book presents a richly illustrated, hands-on discussion of one of the
fastest growing fields in linguistics today. The authors address key
methodological issues in corpus linguistics, such as collocations, keywords
and the categorization of concordance lines. They show how these topics can
be explored step-by-step with "BNCweb", a user-friendly web-based tool that
supports sophisticated analyses of the 100-million-word British National
Corpus. Indeed, the BNC and "BNCweb" have been described by Geoffrey Leech
as "an unparalleled combination of facilities for finding out about the
English language of the present day" (Foreword). The book contains tasks
and exercises, and is suitable for undergraduates, postgraduates and
experienced corpus users alike.

Contents: Reference guide to "BNCweb", a user-friendly, web-based interface
to the British National Corpus (key features include: collocations,
frequency distribution, keywords) - Practical guide to methodology,
covering both quantitative and qualitative analysis of corpora - Query
