The ability to program a computer has become increasingly important in work that involves corpora. Specialised research needs can no longer be met by available software, and purchasing customised programs is usually not an option. This book enables the researcher to write programs for text and corpus processing. Useful techniques are illustrated with the popular programming language Java, which is very well suited for handling textual data, and at the same time easy to learn.
