Reviews

“This book is arranged in an accessible and logical way, and it deserves a wide readership. It is clearly structured and well placed to achieve its goal of showing how a corpus linguistic approach can be merged into various discourse analyses, making it a valuable contribution to current cross-disciplinary studies in language and communication. It can be recommended to faculty and to students who are interested in corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, critical discourse analysis and sociolinguistics.” (Peng Yongmei, Discourse Studies, Vol. 18 (6), 2016)

“For researchers, the book is an up-to-date summary of corpus-driven discourse analysis, and one may find the thorough methodological sections of each chapter helpful in guiding his/her own research. … Throughout the volume, there are many interesting and useful discussions on particular challenges raised by the integration of corpus methods and discourse studies. … scholars of corpus linguistics, discourse analysis and other contingent disciplines would find this book valuable reading with important insights for future research practices.” (Sibo Chen, LINGUIST List, linguistlist.org, March, 2016)
