Doing Corpus Linguistics introduces key concepts in corpus linguistics, which is now regarded as one of the most influential linguistic sub-disciplines contributing to research in applied linguistics and TESOL. Known as a reliable tool widely used in authentic language analysis, language corpora are currently integrated into various fields of language study, e.g. lexis, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, translation, sociolinguistics, language pedagogy, etc., due to the fact that corpus data often surprisingly provide new and interesting knowledge that is unavailable in non-corpus studies or native speakers' intuition (Lindquist, 2009). This book is therefore aimed at familiarizing novice researchers with fundamental technical terms in corpus linguistics. In addition, methods of utilizing already-existing corpora and ways of building researchers' own corpus are presented.
