About the Authors
  • Corpus linguistics is a long-established method which uses authentic language data, stored in extensive computer corpora, as the basis for linguistic research. Moving away from the traditional intuitive approach to linguistics, which used made-up examples, corpus linguistics has made a significant contribution to all areas of the field. Until very recently, corpus linguistics has focused almost exclusively on syntax and the lexicon; however corpus-based approaches to the other subfields of linguistics are now rapidly emerging, and this is the first handbook on corpus pragmatics as a field. Bringing together a team of leading scholars from around the world, this handbook looks at how the use of corpus data has informed research into different key aspects of pragmatics, including pragmatic principles, pragmatic markers, evaluation, reference, speech acts, and conversational organisation.

    • The first ever handbook on corpus pragmatics as a field
    • Brings together a team of leading scholars from around the world
    • Covers pragmatic areas of essential interest, such as pragmatic principles, speech acts, reference and evaluation

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Pragmatics and corpus linguistics are two major areas of linguistics which developed with very different trajectories from the 1960s and 1970s. This volume shows that they are now on convergent paths, and that corpus pragmatics is an emerging discipline in its own right.' Geoffrey Leech, Lancaster University

    'This handbook focuses on the rapidly growing area of corpus pragmatics, filling a gap in the literature. All contributions present relevant pragmatic theory, a review of the earlier literature, and an original empirical study on authentic language data demonstrating how various corpus linguistic methods can be applied to pragmatic research tasks. These studies offer fresh insights and serve as models and inspiration for future scholars.' Irma Taavitsainen, University of Helsinki

    'Corpus Pragmatics: A Handbook is a must-read for researchers interested in the area of corpus pragmatics as well as for scholars with interests in related areas of language use that could benefit from corpus-based approaches. It provides an excellent overview of the field of corpus pragmatics as a whole, and it offers a collection of articles that are interesting, informative, and well written.' Lamont D. Antieau, The Linguist List (linguistlist.org)
