Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This invaluable book places words and their phraseology at thecentre of an account of language that covers meaning, discourse,culture, and much more. The author successfully demystifies his owndiscovery processes, providing the reader with tools for furtherinvestigation. The book's clarity and depth make it indispensablefor students and researchers alike." Susan Hunston, Universityof Birmingham

"Stubbs does a great job of demonstrating the use of corpustechniques for the analysis of lexical semantics. He shows that itis indeed possible to analyse meaning by looking at corpus data,and that the way meaning is constructed through repeated patternsof usage can only be investigated by doing so. His style is veryexplicit, and his prose is easily readable. I well definitely beusing this book in my seminars next term." Oliver Mason,Literary and Linguistic Computing
