Summary
  • "The history of the English language is a vast and diverse area of research. In this volume, a team of leading historians of English come together to analyse 'real' language, drawing on corpus data to shed new light on long-established issues and debates in the field. Combining synchronic and diachronic analysis, the chapters address the major issues in corpus linguistics - methodological, theoretical and applied - and place special focus on the use of electronic resources in the research of English and the wider field of digital humanities. Topics covered include polemical articles on the optimal use of corpus linguistic methods, macro-level patterns of text and discourse organisation, and micro-features such as interjections and hesitators. Covering Englishes from the past and present, this book is designed specifically for graduate students and researchers working in fields of corpus linguistics, the history of the English language, and historical linguistics"--
  • "This book has its origin at the IAUPE (International Association of University Professors in English) conference in Malta, 19-23 July 2010, where we combined the sections of 'Corpus Linguistics' and 'History of English' into a "conference within a conference" that lasted for several days. The papers proved so inspiring and exciting"--
