Book Description:

Corpus Linguistics for Vocabulary provides a practical introduction to using corpus linguistics in vocabulary studies. Using freely available corpus tools, the author provides a step-by-step guide on how corpora can be used to explore key vocabulary-related research questions and topics such as:

    • The frequency of English words and how to choose which ones should be taught to learners;
    • How spoken vocabulary differs from written vocabulary, and how academic vocabulary differs from general vocabulary;
    • How vocabulary contributes to the structure of discourse, and the pragmatic functions it fulfils.

Featuring case studies and tasks throughout, Corpus Linguistics for Vocabulary provides a clear and accessible guide and is essential reading for students and teachers wanting to understand, appreciate and conduct corpus-based research in vocabulary studies.
