A Corpus-Based Approach
11 Acknowledgements Any academic achievement is built on the shoulders of others. In my case gratitude is due first of all to Paul Thompson (now Director of the Centre for Corpus Research, University of Birmingham) for guidance during the doctoral stage of the research. Among those who variously contributed to this project, I am indebted to Clare Furneaux and to the series editor Maurizio Gotti for their comments. A word of thanks goes to librarians at the universities of Reading, Lancaster and London. Finally, on a more personal level, I am grateful to my wife for making me see the wood beyond the trees and to my Maker who allowed the trees to bear fruit.
