"This book is by far the most comprehensive introduction to corpus linguistics published to date. It is essentially three books in one: 1) a conceptual overview of analytical issues, techniques, and findings; 2) a collection of key articles published to date 3) and a set of case studies that fully illustrate the most important analytical and design issues. I will certainly be using the book as a required text in my own courses." Douglas Biber, Northern Arizona University
