'This book is by far the most comprehensive introduction to corpus
linguistics published to date. It is essentially three books in one: 1) a
conceptual overview of analytical issues, techniques, and findings; 2) a
collection of key articles published to date; 3) and a set of case studies
that fully illustrate the most important analytical and design issues. I
will certainly be using the book as a required text in my own courses.'
- Douglas Biber, Regents' Professor of Applied Linguistics, Northern
