Corpus Linguistics, Context and Culture
Ed. by Wiegand, Viola / Mahlberg, Michaela
Series:Diskursmuster - Discourse Patterns 15
Aims and Scope
Corpus Linguistics, Context and Culture demonstrates the potential of corpus linguistic methods for investigating language patterns across a range of contexts. Organised in three sections, the chapters range from detailed case studies on lexico-grammatical patterns to fundamental discussions of meaning as part of the ‘discourse, contexts and cultures’ theme. The final part on ‘learner contexts’ specifically emphasises the need for mixed-method approaches and the consideration of pedagogical implications for real world contexts.
Beyond its contribution to current debates in the field, this edited volume indicates new directions in cross-disciplinary work.
