Description

This book shows how corpus analyses can enhance students’, practitioners’ and researchers’ knowledge of academic language. The book provides a reader-friendly discussion of the key concepts, practices and research applications of corpus linguistics which are relevant to the EAP community. The volume: * empowers readers to compile and analyze EAP-relevant corpora to support their practice; * draws on open-access resources, allowing readers in all contexts to engage in corpus analyses; * examines how corpus studies have advanced the description of spoken, written and computer-mediated academic discourses; * contains numerous reflective and hands-on tasks. Corpus Linguistics for English for Academic Purposes is an essential book for EAP students, practitioners and researchers who wish to develop corpus analytical skills to support their learning, teaching and research practice. It is equally important to novice corpus linguists who wish to find out how they can contribute to the ever-expanding area of EAP. show more
