The essays in this volume, written by Germanists from Britain, Ireland, the USA and Australia, illustrate the enormous potential which corpus-based work has for German Studies as a whole and the rich diversity of work currently being undertaken. Many contributions contain new research data, and topics covered include areas as diverse as literary studies, translation studies, language learning applications, specialist registers, descriptive and critical linguistics, spoken language, historical linguistics, and corpus construction. A detailed introduction explains basic concepts, methods, and applications of corpus-based work.
