about this item

Quantitative Corpus Linguistics with R, Second Edition demonstrates how to use the open source programming language R for corpus linguistic analyses. Computational and corpus linguists doing corpus work will find that R provides an enormous range of functions that currently require several programs to achieve – searching and processing corpora, arranging and outputting the results of corpus searches, statistical evaluation, and graphing. The second edition of this book includes a built-in workbook that includes over a large number and range exercises and assignments, both revised and new, taken from actual research examples. The new assignments cover a variety of applications and each includes: a short introduction to the corpus-linguistic task to be solved; a primer on how to approach the task; and then a heavily-annotated answer key. This is the ideal text toward providing a hands-on approach in courses on Corpus Linguistics.
