With an ever-growing body of corpus linguistic tools, resources and applications, it becomes increasingly important to reflect critically on the underlying assumptions that corpus linguistics is based on. Focusing on meaning and methods, this book tackles fundamental concepts and approaches that define the discourse of the field. Internationally renowned contributors address topics that range from the history of corpus linguistics to contrastive perspectives between languages, to interpreting patterns in corpora as evidence of both mainstream discourses and individual voices within them. This collection not only adds to our understanding of the fundamentals of corpus linguistics, it also brings innovative meanings to the corpus linguistics discourse. It has been edited in honour of Wolfgang Teubert, who for decades has been a significant voice in this discourse.

“This book is a fitting tribute to Wolfgang Teubert - one of the towering figures of contemporary Corpus Linguistics. It takes a critical, reflexive approach to established concepts and shared assumptions in Corpus Linguistics, but also shows what Corpus Linguistics can do, for discourse analysis, contrastive linguistics and translation studies among others. The wide range of topics and methods, and the state-of-the-art approach in each chapter, will appeal to new-comers to the field as well as specialists.”
“This thought-provoking volume brings together an impressive array of contributions by leading researchers in corpus linguistics. Their critical reflections on theory and method do full justice to Wolfgang Teubert’s work, and will pave the way for further advances in the field.”
“In variety and in depth, this volume offers a wealth of discourse. The themes covered within vary widely, but all relate centrally to how we may understand discourse, in all its riches and variety, by analysis using corpus linguistic methods. The volume will provoke lasting reflection and debate and provides timely recognition of the contribution to the field by Wolfgang Teubert.”
