Articles about Corpus Linguistics

When searching, it can be tricky to formulate your search to distinguish articles that discuss corpus linguistics as a methodology vs. applications of corpus linguistics. LLBA provides some subject headings that can help with this.

First, make sure you're using the Advanced Search screen.

Choose Subject Heading (all) SU in the first drop-down menu

In the search box type:

  • "corpus linguistics" if you're interested in methodology
  • "corpus analysis" if you're interested in applications

Make sure you include the quotation marks.

In addition, a keyword search for corpus approach (no quotes) tends to return applied articles, and corpus methodology (no quotes) tends to return methodological articles.
