"This is valuable reading for anyone planning to design a research study based on corpus methodology; it is very detailed, with concrete examples of types of research that can be done through corpus methodology and concerns researchers typically encounter. The editor does a good job including different perspectives and a variety of methodology; it is comprehensive. In some chapters, such as the Stubbs' chapter on the word ''world, '' the reader is walked through designing a small study using corpora. Most chapters include both an introduction and conclusion, making the main ideas of that chapter more accessible...For...specialists...this is a useful book." - Stacia Levy, Ed.D., Linguist List, November 12, 2008--Sanford Lakoff
"An outstanding book, containing a range of original research ideas and insights that push cogently and systematically at the boundaries of the subject." - Professor Ronald Carter, School of English Studies, University of Nottingham, UK--Sanford Lakoff
