Language and computers; studies in practical linguistics; no.55
An international conference in May 2003 in Guernsey assessed the field of corpus linguistics 20 years after it began. The 22 papers and a panel discussion report cover corpus creation, diachronic and synchronic corpus study, the World Wide Web as a corpus, and corpus linguistics and grammatical theory. Among specific topics are computing the lexicons of early modern English, the mediapassive in 20th-century American advertising language, the Spanish pragmatic marker pues and its English equivalents, and tracking ongoing grammatical change.
