Clearly written, by a team of experienced academics in the field, the glossary provides full coverage of both traditional and contemporary terminology. Entries are focused around the following broad groupings: * Important corpora* Key technical terms in the field* Key linguistic terms relevant to corpus-based research* Key statistical measures used in corpus linguistics* Key computer programme/retrieval systems used in the construction and exploitation of corpora* Standards applied within the field of corpus linguistics
