Dictionary- and corpus-based research in applied and descriptive linguistics1
Dictionaries are sometimes used as sources of data for similar purposes as corpora. The value of some of the evidence retrievable from dictionaries is questionable compared with the value given to similar evidence retrieved from corpora. This question can be raised comparing the contents of this part of the book and also of some of the contents of the first part. In both cases, the data obtained from corpora and dictionaries advise to revise statements that are according to logical expectations or according to what is in the literature.
