Quotation Köster, Almut. 2012. Corpora and workplace discourse. In: Corpus Applications in Applied Linguistics: current approaches and future, Hrsg. K. Hyland, M. H. Chau, & M. Handford, 47-66. London: Continuum.




Corpus linguistics is one of the most exciting approaches to studies in applied linguistics today. From its quantitative beginnings it has grown to become an essential aspect of research methodology in a range of fields, often combining with text analysis, CDA, pragmatics and organizational studies to reveal important new insights about how language works. This volume captures some of the most stimulating and significant developments in the field, including chapters on language teaching, institutional and professional discourse, English as an International Language, translation, forensics and media studies. As a result it goes beyond traditional, limited presentations of corpus work and shows how corpora inform a diverse and growing number of applied linguistic domains.
