Summary expansion
Corpora and Language Education provides a comprehensive overview of the field and includes a discussion of the historical and conceptual background of corpus linguistics. The five main approaches to corpus linguistics are critically reviewed. Quotations, definitions and key concepts are included in the main text to highlight important issues and competing voices. The author illustrates how corpus linguistics has been applied in various research fields, e.g. business and health care contexts, forensic linguistics, literary stylistics, translation studies, second language acquisition, lexicography and testing. The application of corpus linguistics techniques to pedagogy is also discussed. Ten exemplary case studies illustrating 'best practices' research are outlined and commented on. The volume also provides a comprehensive list of key print and online resources
