"This textbook makes Practical Corpus Linguistics accessible to everyone. The focus on methodological and technical aspects and the instructive dimension of the book – nothing is considered obvious or already known – make it very useful to any corpus linguist aiming at a better understanding of his/her data...Through the various exercises, it is very easy to test one’s comprehension and the reader gradually gains confidence. The educational, sometimes entertaining tone as well as the glossary also contribute to gradually enhance the reader’s learning capacities in a field in which many feel insecure...It should accompany scholars at the beginning of any research to raise awareness about technical issues that are too often overlooked..." - Robert A. Cote for The LINGUIST List, December 2016
From the Back Cover
Designed to help readers analyze and interpret language data, both written and (orthographically) transcribed, Practical Corpus Linguistics offers a step-by-step guide to this burgeoning field of linguistics research. In this accessible introduction, Martin Weisser not only explains the nature of electronic data, illustrating how it can be collected and prepared for analysis purposes, but also demonstrates ways of comparing the results of readers’ own smaller-scale analyses to facts obtained from general reference corpora. Each section includes practical exercises, a list of sources and further reading, and illustrated step-by-step introductions to analysis tools.Seamlessly balancing computer science with linguistic theory, Practical Corpus Linguistics is essential reading for anyone interested in developing the specific linguistic analysis skills required for analyzing corpus data. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
