Corpus Data across Languages and Disciplines


Edited By Piotr Pezik

Over the recent years corpus tools and methodologies have gained widespread recognition in various areas of theoretical and applied linguistics. Data lodged in corpora is explored and exploited across languages and disciplines as distinct as historical linguistics, language didactics, discourse analysis, machine translation and search engine development to name but a few. This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 8 th edition of the Practical Applications in Language and Computers conference and it is aimed at helping a wide community of researchers, language professionals and practitioners keep up to date with new corpus theories and methodologies as well as language-related applications of computational tools and resources.
