The paper argues that ideas in SFL and corpus linguistics may be regarded as parallel (register), diver- gent (grammar and phraseology), and complementary (lexis and taxonomy). Fol

Bernardini Wolfgang Teubert Corpus linguistics: Widening the remit Abstract: Language allows us to turn our experiences into meaning and share them with others. This is why linguistics, and corpus linguistics in particular, should have a strong focus on the meaning of what is said. If we accept the mean- ing of a lexical item such as human rights to be everything said about it (the par- aphrastic content of all occurrences of this item), we’ll find that the Firthian con- cept of meaning (1957: 196) as an “abstraction on the Graham Katz 14 Semantics in corpus linguistics 1 Introduction   409 2 Corpus linguistics and semantics   411 3 Theoretical semantics and corpora   414 4 Semantic annotation   419 5 Distributional semantic models   431 6 References   434 Abstract: Linguistic corpora are a rich source of data for semantic analysis, and researchers have begun to use these corpora in innovative ways to improve the depth and breadth of semantic theory.

1 Introduction In the first volume of Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory , Gries ( 2005 : 285) asked the following question, intended as a follow-up to Kilgarriff (2005) : “Do the points of critique and the proposals […] as well as the present findings also mean that we as corpus linguists should more or less abandon null-hypothesis significance testing?” This a revised and extended version of the introduction of my doctoral thesis, available at , last accessed 05/20/2016.

1 Introduction The last couple of decades have witnessed an increasing awareness of the benefits to be derived from the integration of corpus linguistics and grammaticalization theory, two areas which until quite recently had tended to remain separate. Corpus linguistics provides sound empirical methodology for the recognition and documentation of grammaticalization processes, by making use of computerized corpora and relying on established statistical practices, especially those developed during the latter part of the twentieth century. In turn

is far from simple, the interpretive enterprise has developed a multitude of canons, doctrines, decisions, and theories concerning the appropriate way to uncover the meaning of the text, as well as a number of tools, such as dictionaries, to attempt to make the interpretive enterprise more objective. One new tool for statutory and constitutional interpreters is corpus linguistics. Despite an intimidating Latin name, corpus linguistics is conceptually and operationally straightforward: corpus linguistics is the study of language (linguistics) by analyzing samples of
