This step-by-step guide to creating and analyzing linguistic corpora discusses the role that corpus linguistics plays in linguistic theory. It demonstrates that corpora have proven to be very useful resources for linguists who believe that their theories and descriptions of English should be based on real rather than contrived data. The author shows how to collect and computerize data for inclusion in a corpus and how to annotate and conduct a linguistic analysis once the corpus has been created.

'... a very welcome addition to the range of corpus linguistic publications. It offers the beginner a brief yet valuable introduction to the basic aims and - especially - the research procedures of corpus linguistics and thus serves a real need.' International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English
