Explorations across Languages and Corpora

PALC 2009

Series:

Edited By Stanislaw Gozdz-Roszkowski

This volume attempts to keep track of the most recent developments in corpus-based, corpus-driven and corpus-informed studies. It signals the widening scope and perspectives on language and computers by documenting new developments and explorations in these areas encompassing an array of topics and themes, ranging from national corpora, corpus tools, information and terminology extraction through cognitive processes, discourse and ideology, academic discourse, translation, and lexicography to language teaching and learning. The contributions are drawn from a selection of papers presented at the 7 th Practical Applications in Language and Computers PALC conference held at the University of Łódź in 2009.
