Studies in English Usage

The Resources of a Present-Day English Corpus for Linguistic Analysis


Wolf-Dietrich Bald and Robert Ilson

Corpus analyses of the present-day written and especially the spoken English on the basis of a new linguistic theory and using tested methods are still rare. The contributions give new insights into the English noun phrase, the future tense, the information structure of sentences, the occurrence of «iz» vs. «z», and finally a study of anacolutha in spoken English. The last three papers are analyzing spoken the other five written resp. printed English.
