'Pragmatics and corpus linguistics are two major areas of linguistics which developed with very different trajectories from the 1960s and 1970s. This volume shows that they are now on convergent paths, and that corpus pragmatics is an emerging discipline in its own right.' Geoffrey Leech, Lancaster University
'This handbook focuses on the rapidly growing area of corpus pragmatics, filling a gap in the literature. All contributions present relevant pragmatic theory, a review of the earlier literature, and an original empirical study on authentic language data demonstrating how various corpus linguistic methods can be applied to pragmatic research tasks. These studies offer fresh insights and serve as models and inspiration for future scholars.' Irma Taavitsainen, University of Helsinki
'Corpus Pragmatics: A Handbook is a must-read for researchers interested in the area of corpus pragmatics as well as for scholars with interests in related areas of language use that could benefit from corpus-based approaches. It provides an excellent overview of the field of corpus pragmatics as a whole, and it offers a collection of articles that are interesting, informative, and well written.' Lamont D. Antieau, The Linguist List (linguistlist.org)
'Corpus Pragmatics is a rich depository of information for graduate students and researchers. The authors successfully met the goal of overviewing and expanding the field of corpus pragmatics by keeping the right balance between theoretical background and practical aspects of analysis, including specific empirical authentic examples from corpus data ... The handbook sheds light both on the achievements and the existing challenges related to using corpora for pragmatic research ... Corpus Pragmatics provides a solid repository of knowledge and new research avenues for everybody who wants to further explore and contribute to this fascinating linguistic field.' Oksana Bomba, LINGUIST List
