The Pavia Corpus of Film Dialogue: a means to several ends
Having a clearly articulated question is an essential first step in corpus construction since this will guide the design of the corpus (Reppen 2010: 31).
Corpus Linguistics (CL), for many, is an end in itself. That is, it provides a means for the empirical analysis of language and in so doing adds to its definition and description. […] Increasingly, however, CL is being used in the pursuit of broader research questions: […] In this sense, CL is a means to an end rather than an end in itself (McCarthy/O’Keeffe 2010: 7).
