Using Corpora in Discourse Analysis (Continuum Discourse) by Ken Hyland,Paul Baker



This book examines approaches to carrying out discourse analysis (DA) using techniques that are grounded in corpus linguistics. Assuming no prior knowledge of corpora, the book examines and evaluates a variety of corpus-based methodologies including:

* collocations,* keyness* concordances* dispersion plots* building and annotating corpora

Illustrated with a number of real-life examples of corpus-based DA from a range of sources and covering a variety of subjects, this is an informative introduction to using corpus linguistics as a methodology in discourse analysis.
