Corpus Linguistics

Corpus Linguistics. Corpus Linguistics is the study of language as revealed in a corpus or large, scientifically selection collection of texts. There are a small number of Corpus Linguistics MAs but most MA Applied Linguistics and, increasingly, MA linguistics will cover something about the subject. Corpus Linguistics, which is based on empirical evidence in how language is actually used, is extremely important in lexicography and dictionary design, grammar and, increasingly, English language teaching and second language acquisition.
