Overview


The first symposium in North America to address corpus linguistics was sponsored by the University of Michigan's English Language Institute in 1999. Corpus Linguistics in North America is a collection of selected and revised papers from this conference. The papers address the "states of art" in corpus linguistics in North America by focusing on work that is descriptive of languages, often with implications for pedagogy and materials development.
Corpus Linguistics in North America is divided into two parts. Part 1 examines corpus development and tools for accessing existing corpus resources, and Part 2 looks at current linguistic analyses using corpora. Corpus linguists from all over the world have contributed to this volume. A glossary of corpus building and tools is included.
This important milestone in the development of corpus linguistics in North America will be of interest to all students of applied linguistics and teachers of languages.
