With clear descriptions and a practical approach, Exploring English with Online Corpora: * introduces readers to a range of online corpora that can be used to explore and analyse the English language * provides a detailed guide to interpreting corpus data * demonstrates how teachers and lecturers can integrate corpora into language courses * includes interactive tasks, a helpful glossary and further reading sections This essential guide to the use of online corpora will be invaluable for students studying the English language and beginning to formulate their own research questions.
