Meaningful Texts: The Extraction of Semantic Information from Monolingual and Multilingual Corpora

£9.99

Product description

Reflects the growing influence of corpus linguistics on areas such as lexicography, translation studies, genre analysis and language teaching.

The Book is divided into two sections, the first on monolingual corpora and the second addressing multilingual corpora. The range of languages covers includes English, French and German, but also Chinese and some of the less widely known and less widely explored central and eastern European languages. The chapters discuss:

- The relationship between methodology and theory
- The importance of computers for providing teaching and translation tools
- The significance of corpus annotation
- How corpus linguistic investigations can shed light on social and cultural aspects of language

Presenting fascinating research in the field, this book will be of interest to academics researching the importance of corpus linguistics in modern linguistic studies and the applications of corpus linguistics.
