Nine corpus-linguistic papers address semantic similarity in different words, different senses of a single word, and words and different syntactic structures; how different aspects of causation and transitivity are manifested linguistically; and the role of image schemas in cognitive linguistics and their corpus-based exploration. Methodologically most of the papers lean towards the quantitative, but they differ in their granularity as well as their topics.
