Editorial Reviews


"By far the most extensive quantitative investigation of spoken-written language differences has been the recent stunning research of Biber..." W. Chafe and D. Tannen |x

"This work is an important landmark in several aspects. It is the most comprehensive objective study ever undertaken of variation across representative genres of speech and writing. It is the most far-reaching research into variation, bringing to bear a large number of linguistic variables on a large number of texts. It is one of the most sophisticated examples of advanced statistical technique ever applied to linguistic data, and it is a model of how to use (and how to explain the use of) factor analysis....Biber has produced a landmark study deserving a wide audience." Robert S. Wachal, American Speech

Book Description

This widely acclaimed empirical study uses a factor analysis to identify six dimensions of variation on the basis of linguistic co-occurence patterns.
