AHDS literature, languages and linguistics


A linguistic corpus is a collection of texts which have been brought together so that language can be studied on the computer. Writing in non-technical terms, leading experts in key areas of corpus construction take readers through the basic first steps involved in creating a corpus of language data in electronic form for the purpose of linguistic research. Little or no knowledge of corpus linguistics or computational procedures is assumed. There is no subject index. The book is distributed in the US by The David Brown Book Company.
