This volume provides a state-of-the-art overview of the intersecting fields of corpus linguistics, historical linguistics, and genre-based studies of language usage. Papers in this collection are devoted to presenting relevant methods pertinent to corpus-based studies of the connection between genre and language change, linguistic changes that occur in particular genres, and specific diachronic phenomena that are influenced by genre factors to greater and lesser degrees. Data are drawn from a number of languages, and the scope of the studies presented here is both short- and long-term, covering cases of recent change as well as more long-term alterations.

Table of Contents
“Overall, this collection affords a rich insight into diachronic corpus research on genre and language change. It not only broadens the view by including papers that adopt MLR, differing approaches and cover a wide range of languages, but also stresses the importance of the variable ‘genre’ for (historical) corpus research.”
