It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

New from Cambridge University Press!


Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: A Taste for Corpora
Subtitle: In honour of Sylviane Granger
Edited By: Fanny Meunier
Sylvie De Cock
Gaëtanelle Gilquin
Magali Paquot
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 45

The eleven contributions to this volume, written by expert corpus linguists,
tackle corpora from a wide range of perspectives and aim to shed light on the
numerous linguistic and pedagogical uses to which corpora can be put. They
present cutting-edge research in the authors’ respective domain of expertise and
suggest directions for future research. The main focus of the book is on learner
corpora, but it also includes reflections on the role of other types of corpora,
such as native corpora, expert users corpora, parallel corpora or corpora of New
Englishes. For readers who are already familiar with corpora, this volume offers
an informed account of the key role that corpus data play in applied linguistics
today. As for readers who are new to corpus linguistics, the overview of
approaches, methods and domains of applications presented will undoubtedly
help them develop their own taste for corpora. This volume has been edited in
honour of Sylviane Granger, who has been one of the pioneers of learner corpus
