Title: Korpuspragmatik [Corpus Pragmatics]
Subtitle: Thematische Korpora als Basis diskurslinguistischer Analysen
Edited By: Ekkehard Felder
Marcus Müller
Friedemann Vogel
Series Title: De Gruyter: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 44

This volume considers, from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, how
pragmatic phenomena can be investigated using corpus linguistics. It includes
individual contributions based in the study of German, English and Romance
language and literature. They discuss corpus pragmatic procedures, results and
infrastructures from research relating to Critical Discourse Analysis, Foucault’s
linguistics of discourse, research on speech acts, computer linguistics and
historical pragmatics. The result is a comprehensive overview of the present
state of debate on corpus linguistics in important areas of today’s pragmatics.
