Corpus linguistics is one of the most exciting approaches to studies in applied linguistics today. From its quantitative beginnings it has grown to become an essential aspect of research methodology in a range of fields, often combining with text analysis, CDA, pragmatics and organizational studies to reveal important new insights about how language works. This volume captures some of the most stimulating and significant developments in the field, including chapters on language teaching, institutional and professional discourse, English as an International Language, translation, forensics and media studies. As a result it goes beyond traditional, limited presentations of corpus work and shows how corpora inform a diverse and growing number of applied linguistic domains.

MEDIA REVIEWS
We may not be too far away from the day when reference to corpus data is a sine qua non for any linguistic description and investigation. This book provides an astonishingly successful step in this direction. The book bristles with powerful insights, good practical ideas, exciting theory-building, exemplifying on every page the practice of applied linguistics at its very best. -- Professor Ronald Carter, School of English Studies, University of Nottingham
The contributions to this volume showcase a number of exciting ways in which corpora of different types, consisting of spoken and written text produced by different groups of people, including native and non-native speakers, business professionals and academics, can be used to help us solve, or at least better understand, real-world problems that are of major concern to applied linguists. I would recommend the volume to researchers, practitioners and students who are looking for fresh views on current work in the field and new ideas for future projects in Applied Corpus Linguistics. -- Dr. Ute Roemer, Georgia State University, USA
Readers will find many interesting suggestions and ideas for future study and research... Each separate chapter makes a valid contribution to the general theme of using corpora in applied linguistics. -- Carmela Chateau, Universite de Bourgogne * Linguist *
